Redondo Beach, CA Job Discrimination Attorneys
Redondo Beach is one of just three beach cities located in Los Angeles County, with a population of nearly 67,000 residents. While many people think of the area for it's beautiful beaches and Municipal Pier, Redondo Beach is also a workplace to several thousand employees.1
Even with the laid back beach lifestyle, unfortunately residents and employees in Redondo Beach still experience various types of discrimination and injustice in the workplace. In fact, based on statewide statistics, it is estimated that in 2012 there were 35 cases of employment discrimination filed by residents of Redondo Beach, and nearly 20,000 cases filed statewide throughout California.2
While these numbers may appear high on the surface, the grim reality of workplace discrimination and mistreatment is that only a small fraction of those treated improperly ever come forward to file a case. In actuality, the number of people discriminated against, treated poorly, or improperly terminated is much higher than the number of cases filed. Many people are afraid of the repercussions of coming forward to report their employer and others just don't know where to turn for help.
