Louisiana employees may frequently feel like they are mistreated by their employers. Employers have a lot of power when it comes to how they treat the people they employ. However, state and federal laws protect employees in important ways. For one, employees are protected against illegal discrimination based on their gender, race, religion, age, medical condition or similar factors. Furthermore, employees are protected from retaliation from an employer for complaining about workplace discrimination.
Although these rules exist, many Louisiana employers fail to follow them. Many employees go to work and know that they will face discrimination and retaliation. They may feel helpless, embarrassed or worse. In these situations, legal options are often available.
