FROM THIS EPISODE

Maria Vazquez's former boss was ordered to pay her close to $1.5 million for almost a decade of sexual assault and back pay, but it's likely she will never see a dime. Until recently, corporate shell games allowed business owners to evade payments to former employees with a simple change of business name, owner name or assets. In part four of Burned: Abuse in LA's Restaurant Industry, KCRW's Karen Foshay reports on how advocates, lawyers and the labor commissioner are trying to stop the shell games.

Audio production for this series by Myke Dodge Weiskopf.

The series is supported by a grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
