State and federal laws protect individuals from being discriminated against in the workplace, including unlawful retaliation or termination. At the law office of Robert B. Landry III PLC, we provide knowledgeable, aggressive and effective legal representation to individuals in all aspects of employment law.
Our firm works with individuals in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Lafayette, and throughout the region. Mr. Landry is an experienced employment law attorney who knows how to deal with the workplace legal problems facing employees.
Protecting Your Rights and Pursuing Damages
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Louisiana Employment Discrimination Law (La. R.S. 23:301 et seq.), employees are protected against discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.
Although we work with clients from a broad spectrum of industries, we have extensive experience advising doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals, as well as professors at Louisiana's numerous colleges and universities who are wrestling with issues regarding tenure.
Louisiana employees who are victims of discrimination may seek compensatory damages under either law or, in some cases, in both state and federal courts. Deciding which court to file in is a strategic concern that can only be made following a thorough review of the facts by an experienced employment law attorney.
We represent clients in all aspects of employment law, including:
- Sexual and gender harassment and discrimination
- Race, color and national origin harassment and discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Age discrimination
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Wrongful termination
- Workplace retaliation
- Civil rights violations
- School bullying or hazing
- Whistleblower protection
- Wage and hour claims
- Violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act
- Noncompete and executive contracts
