The Los Angeles area has traditionally served as a destination for many immigrants. Today, an estimated 35 percent of L.A. County residents are immigrants and 44 percent of households in the County are "headed by an immigrant." For the men and women who immigrate to the U.S. and decide to make the Los Angeles area their new home, finding a well-paying job can be challenging.
The relationship between an employer and employee is one that, throughout history, has been the subject of much examination and debate. Thankfully, today numerous laws exist that help protect the rights of employees with regard to workplace safety, discrimination, harassment and fair wages. In cases where an employer violates one or more of these types of employment laws and subsequently terminates an employee, legal action may be appropriate.
Diversity in age, sex, religion, personal beliefs, race and sexual orientation are what makes human beings unique and interesting. Unfortunately, there are those individuals who choose to exploit and discriminate against others for their unique differences. When this type of discrimination or harassment occurs in a workplace setting, legal action may be appropriate.
