Venice, CA Employment Discrimination Attorneys
First founded in 1905, Venice is a thriving beachfront community and is home today to nearly 41,000 residents. The majority of Venice's population works in professional service related jobs as well as sales and office based positions.1
No matter what type of position you hold, discrimination is becoming more and more common in today's workplaces. In fact, it is estimated that over 20 cases of workplace discrimination were filed by residents of Venice in 2012, and over 20,000 cases were filed statewide in California.2
While this may sound like a high number of cases, the number of actual acts of discrimination is exponentially higher. Everyday workers are discriminated against and treated unfairly in their workplace for reasons ranging from their age and race to being a whistleblower about a legitimate concern. No matter what the situation, employees deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and when these basic rights are violated the law is on your side.
Shegerian & Associates has been an advocate for employees for over a decade. We have the experience necessary to handle any type of discrimination case, and have helped hundreds of our clients fight for their rights after they were mistreated in the workplace. Here are just a few local verdicts our client's have been awarded:
