La Palma, California
La Palma is city located in Orange County. La Palma covers less than two square miles but is home to more than 15,000 residents. La Palma lies within zip code 90623. With 18 dairies dotting an area of 1.76 square miles, the City of La Palma in 1955 looked nothing like it does today. In fact, the City of La Palma was first incorporated as Dairyland and remained so until the dairies relocated. The name was changed in 1965 to La Palma in reflection of Orange County’s Spanish heritage and the City’s main street, La Palma Avenue. Soon after the small farming community began its life, City planners decided that the City should benefit from a long-term program for orderly development. he Civic Center and Central Park, now La Palma’s premier gathering places, were among the first projects to be completed to better the community. The City’s major redevelopment project, Centerpointe, added new commercial and light industrial uses in the early 1980s. La Palma is a well balanced city which prides itself on a responsive municipal government and a strong sense of community. The City’s small town character allows residents to live in quiet and friendly neighborhoods. With one of the lowest crime rates in Orange County, La Palma is a place where residents can rest easy and enjoy hometown living. The City has been ranked one of America’s Best Places to Live, by Money Magazine in 2007, 2011, 2013, and 2015.

Although it is impossible for employers to completely remove all risks of age discrimination occurring in the workplace, there are certain things which can be done in order to reduce the likelihood of that happening. Here are three things that every employer can consider doing: Provide Age Discrimination Training The most important thing that any employer can do is to train its employees – management level employees with supervisory authority over others in particular – regarding the subject of age discrimination. Many people are aware of the fact that the law prohibits certain types of discrimination in the workplace, such as race discrimination or gender discrimination. This is because these topics frequently appear on the evening news or social media. Although race and gender may be the most commonly known types of discrimination against which the law provides protection, they certainly are not the only ones. Surprisingly, there are many management level employees who are not even cognizant of the fact that age discrimination is prohibited by state and federal law.

In most, if not all, sexual harassment cases that go to trial, the court is likely to give the jury the following instruction: "Evidence can come in many forms. It can be testimony about what someone saw or heard or smelled. It can be an exhibit admitted into evidence. It can be someone’s opinion. Direct evidence can prove a fact by itself. For example, if a witness testifies she saw a jet plane flying across the sky, that testimony is direct evidence that a plane flew across the sky. Some evidence proves a fact indirectly.
