About Pico Rivera, California

Pico Rivera is a city located in southeast Los Angeles County.  It is home to more than 60,000 residents.  It covers approximately nine square miles and encompasses the following zip codes: 90660, 90661, and 90601. Pico Rivera was founded in 1958, from the merger of the long-standing unincorporated communities of Pico (named for Pío Pico, the last Mexican governor of California) and Rivera. Situated on a rich sandy plain between the Rio Hondo and the San Gabriel River, the area was once predominantly agricultural; but, at the end of WWII, the fast rising demand for homes lured builders to the attractive terrain. Since the 1950s, it has been both residential as well as industrial. It had a Ford Motor Company plant for many years: Los Angeles Assembly. Pico Rivera lies below the Whittier Narrows, making it one of the “Gateway Cities”. In January 1958, 56 percent of the electorate voted for incorporation. They approved a Council-Manager form of government, and the name “Pico Rivera” was established for the new city. There has been significant redevelopment in the city: the opening of the “Pico Rivera Towne Center,” after the demolition of Northrop Grumman, a 60-acre open-air shopping complex along Washington Boulevard, that has brought in such well-known businesses as L.A. Fitness, Lowe’s, Walmart, Walgreens, TGIF and other businesses into the city.  Pico Rivera, California, is home to a mix of businesses and employers spanning various industries.

Featured Employment Case

Haberman v. Cengage Learning, Inc., 180 Cal. App. 4th 365, 103 Cal. Rptr. 3d 19 (2009)
A terminated sales employee sued her former employer, her former supervisor, and the employer’s national sales manager, alleging sexual harassment, retaliation, breach of contract, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The Superior Court entered summary judgment in favor of defendants. On appeal the Court of Appeal, Fybel, J., held that: 1 evidence did not support hostile working environment claim; 2 evidence did not support sexual harassment claim against former supervisor; 3 evidence did not support sexual harassment claim against national sales manager; 4 employee failed to establish claim of retaliation; and 5 employee failed to establish claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress.  The appellate opinion explained as follows: Evidence that terminated sales employee’s superiors complimented her appearance and suggested that she would disappoint a few men in the company if she brought her boyfriend to a company party was insufficient to establish a pattern of continuous, pervasive harassment, necessary to show a hostile working environment under Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). Evidence that terminated sales employee’s former supervisor told her that he wanted to bring his “guys” in, made comments to her about his wife’s friend wanting to date him, suggested that employee would disappoint a few men in the company if she brought her boyfriend to a company party, and placed employee on a performance improvement plan was insufficient to establish sexual harassment claim against former supervisor. Evidence that terminated sales employee’s former employer’s national sales manager told a crude joke, complimented employee’s appearance, informed employee that some other individuals had expressed interest in her, commented on the appearance of other women, and made a mild sexual innuendo while talking to employee on the telephone was insufficient to establish sexual harassment claim against national sales manager.
