The Employment Lawyers Group has been a persistent force in representing South Bay employees since 1993. Early on in our existence, we represented a lot of aerospace workers being laid off and/or fired due to age. Once these El Segundo, Gardena, Lakewood, Long Beach, Playa Del Rey, and Torrance facilities closed down the industries that led to employee lawsuits included car dealerships, LAX and related airport services, restaurants, retail headquarters, and security companies. Although the manufacturing industry and warehouse industry still exists in the South Bay, it is not what it used to be. Today The South Bay has a diverse workforce of Asians, blacks, Hispanics, Pacific Islanders, Somoans, and whites. This diversity has created employment problems. We have represented employees from these groups in religious discrimination and race discrimination cases. These cases included Somoans ganging up on the non-Somoans, Koreans discriminating against Indians, and a Latino who called himself white discriminating against a Muslim. We have also found sexual harassment to be a particular problem in the South Bay workplace lawsuits. In 2019 we succeeded in being approved as class counsel in a wage and hour class action against a major vendor at LAX whose paystubs did not comply with the California Labor Code. If you are looking for an established law firm with experienced employee rights lawyers give us a call.
