Top employers in town include: GKN Aerospace Chem-tronics, Taylor Guitars and the Cajon Valley School District.

Pain and Suffering
When a person is harassed, wrongfully terminated or discriminated against, it can cause not only financial problems, but physical and mental problems as well. Pain and suffering can include:
- Panic Attacks
- Muscle Spasms
- Other Issues
Sometimes, when a company discriminates, harasses or retaliates against an employee, the worker is denied his or her rightful wages. A court may award an employee back pay in certain situations — an amount that can add up significantly depending on how long the violations occurred.
This type of compensation might be awarded in cases where an employee lost a job and was unable to find another one for a prolonged period of time. If an employee were making an annual salary of $50,000 at the time of wrongful termination, and was unable to find work for three years, that employee could potentially collect lost wages for each year without work. In this hypothetical situation, $150,000.
Designed to punish the employer and prevent the discriminating behavior from happening again, punitive damages can result in high-dollar amounts.
