Paramount, California

Paramount is located in southeast Los Angeles.  Paramount is home to more than 60,000 residents.  It covers approximately five square miles, and encompasses the 90723 zip code. In the first half of the 20th century, the villages of Hynes and Clearwater were the center of Southern California’s dairy industry, and were known as both “The Milk Shed of Los Angeles” and “The World’s Largest Hay Market.” In 1948, after discussions dating back to 1925, the two towns unified under the name of Paramount. This name was taken from the main boulevard running through the area, which itself had been changed from Ocean Ave. in 1931. Incorporation as a municipality was eventually approved in 1957. As the years went by, and the region urbanized, and the land finally became more valuable for development than milk production – when homes and stores nudged out cows and bales of hay – the farmers left for places like Ontario and Chino. The history of Paramount has in many ways followed a path typical of its Southeast Los Angeles County neighbors. By 1981, a study by the Rand Corporation labeled the City an “urban disaster area.” Rather than sink under the weight of its problems, Paramount chose a proactive course to meet them head on. Through the dedicated efforts of government officials, residents, the faith-based community, and businesses, the City made incredible strides in renewal. Combining existing urban planning tools with programs of its own, the City began leaving its “Rust Belt” status behind in the 1980s. This led to Paramount being named an “All-America City” by the National Civic League in 1988, and many of its innovative programs have attracted state and national recognition. Paramount is a unique place, known for its successful transformation from what was once a blighted suburb to what’s now an attractive small town graced by tree-lined neighborhoods, white picket fences, public art, pocket parks, and landscaped boulevards. With offices in Burbank, Orange, and Riverside the Akopyan Law Firm A.P.C. is just minutes away from Paramount.

Featured Employment Case

Taylor v. Nabors Drilling USA, LP, 222 Cal. App. 4th 1228, 166 Cal. Rptr. 3d 676 (2014)

In this sexual harassment case, the Court of appeal laid out the elements of a hostile work environment sexual harassment claim under the Fair Employment and Hosing Act as follows: A plaintiff employee to show he or she was subjected to sexual advances, conduct, or comments that were (1) unwelcome; (2) because of sex; and (3) sufficiently severe or pervasive to alter the conditions of his or her employment and create an abusive work environment; and he or she must establish the offending conduct was imputable to his or her employer. A plaintiff employee in a Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) sexual harassment suit must show the conduct at issue was not merely tinged with offensive sexual connotations, but actually constituted discrimination because of sex. To plead a cause of action for sexual harassment under Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), it is only necessary to show that gender is a substantial factor in the discrimination, and that if the plaintiff had been the other sex he or she would not have been treated in the same manner; accordingly, it is the disparate treatment of an employee on the basis of sex, not the mere discussion of sex or use of vulgar language, that is the essence of a sexual harassment claim.  Prohibited workplace sexual harassment under Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) includes verbal, physical, and visual harassment, as well as unwanted sexual advances, where “verbal harassment” may include epithets, derogatory comments, or slurs on the basis of sex, and “visual harassment” may include derogatory posters, cartoons, or drawings on the basis of sex. A Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) hostile work environment sexual harassment claim is not established where a supervisor or coworker simply uses crude or inappropriate language in front of employees or draws a vulgar picture, without directing sexual innuendos or gender-related language toward a plaintiff or toward women or men in general. Under Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), an employer is liable for sexual harassment by a nonsupervisory employee only if the employer (1) knew or should have known of the harassing conduct and (2) failed to take immediate and appropriate corrective action; this is a negligence standard. The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) makes the employer strictly liable for sexual harassment by a supervisor.
