About Fontana

Fontana is city located in San Bernardino County.  Fontana covers forty three square miles.  It is home to roughly 210,000 residents.  Fontana lies within zip codes: 92331, 92334, 92335, 92336, and 92337.  Fontana, founded in 1913, has grown into the second-largest city in San Bernardino County and the 19th largest in California. It started as an agricultural community and transformed into a thriving industrial town by 1942, mainly due to the establishment of Henry J. Kaiser’s steel mill during World War II, situated on the town’s outskirts. The Kaiser Steel mill played a significant role in employment and revenue generation until 1984 when it ceased operations. However, Kaiser’s legacy lives on through the Fontana Kaiser Permanente Facility, now employing over 6,000 people. Over the years, Fontana has experienced rapid growth, driven by factors such as the development of the Kaiser Permanente Hospital facility, one of the region’s largest medical centers, and a surge in population growth that stimulated major residential, commercial, and industrial development. Fontana’s strategic location makes it a crucial hub in the supply chain. Situated at the crossroads of major trade routes (I-10, I-15, and SR-210) and home to the Union Pacific Railroad, it facilitates efficient transportation and logistics. The city hosts numerous large retailers and small businesses, while the Fontana Metrolink station provides a convenient commuting option for residents working in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

With a population exceeding 213,000, Fontana stands out for its low crime rate, affordable housing, diversity, and below-average unemployment rate. These factors have contributed to making it one of California’s fastest-growing cities and a trendsetter in San Bernardino County. The city enjoys temperate southern California weather, allowing it to host various festivals, parades, and walks/races throughout the year, including the Fontana Days Half Marathon, known for having the world’s fastest half-marathon course.

Fontana takes pride in its cultural, sporting, and recreational opportunities, including venues like Center Stage Theater, the Art Depot, the Auto Club Speedway, sports fields, parks, the Pacific Electric Trail, and the state-of-the-art Lewis Library and Technology Center, which is the largest library in San Bernardino County. Education is a priority, with five school districts serving the city, and Chaffey Community College offering diverse educational opportunities.

Fontana’s commitment to family life and community well-being has been recognized nationally. It was ranked the 24th best place to raise a family in the United States by Best Life magazine in 2008. The city was also named one of the Nation’s 100 Best Communities for Young People by America’s Promise Alliance and ING in both 2008 and 2010.

Additionally, Fontana has received recognition for its safety, financial strength, and prosperity. In 2014, it was named one of the Top 20 Safest Cities in the Nation by Business Insider. In 2017, Fontana was recognized as the second strongest city financially by the Fiscal Times. In 2018, it earned the title of the Most Prosperous City in California and the Fourth Most Prosperous in the United States according to RENTCafe.

Featured Employment Case

Beyda v. City of Los Angeles, 65 Cal. App. 4th 511, 76 Cal. Rptr. 2d 547 (1998)
A City council aide filed a sexual harassment action against council member and some of his male aides. The Superior Court granted judgment for the defense. The aide appealed. The Court of Appeal held that: (1) the aide’s “workplace,” for purposes of a hostile work environment sexual harassment claim, was not limited to the particular office in which she worked primarily where she also spent time on work-related business at another office; (2) evidence of other acts of sexual harassment in the work environment is relevant in determining whether a complaining employee perceived a hostile environment, if the complaining employee had personal knowledge of the other incidents, even if the complaining employee did not personally witness the events; and (3) evidence that the city council member and some of his male aides had sexually harassed others was not relevant in the female aide’s hostile work environment sexual harassment action where there was no indication that the female aide knew of the alleged harassment while she worked for council member.  The Court explained that the aide’s “workplace,” for the purposes of a hostile work environment sexual harassment claim, was not limited to particular office in which she worked primarily where she also spent time on work-related business at another office.  The court noted that evidence of harassment would not be excluded simply because it occurred at a different office.  Proffered evidence of other acts of sexual harassment in the work environment is relevant in determining whether complaining employee perceived hostile environment, if complaining employee had personal knowledge of other incidents, even if complaining employee did not personally witness events; personal observation is not the only way that person can perceive, and be affected by, harassing conduct in workplace, but workplace gossip is not a substitute for proof.
