The diversity of American workplaces and neighborhoods is widely considered one of our country's most important strengths. Unfortunately, not everyone adheres to that belief. At times, individuals are subjected to discrimination based upon race, skin color or national origin.
Workplace discrimination based on race or national origin is prohibited by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Discrimination includes being terminated from a position or not being hired due to ethnic origin. It can also include being passed over for a promotion, denied benefits or denied work assignments due to race.
Our legal team often resolves race discrimination cases without the need to go to trial. We do not accept agreements that are less than fair to our clients, however. Robert B. Landry III PLC is a trial-tested lawyer who always stands ready to advocate aggressively in court if necessary.
Experience in Discrimination Cases
At the law office of Robert B. Landry III PLC, in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, we advocate aggressively for victims of race discrimination and other workplace discrimination infractions. These can be complicated cases to prove, requiring extensive documentation and a precise presentation.
Discrimination may come in the form of ethnic slurs, offensive comments, racial jokes, or sometimes more subtle behavior. This can result in harassment or even constitute evidence of unlawful motives behind adverse workplace decisions. You should document such occurrences and contact us for assistance in protecting your rights.
Mr. Landry is uniquely qualified to represent victims of workplace discrimination as a result of working for more than a decade with a highly regarded corporate law firm that represented "the other side" in these cases.
We understand the legal strategies that are commonly taken to defend against discrimination claims. We know how to build strong cases that can withstand intense scrutiny and produce favorable resolutions.
