MY BOSS SAYS . . . I need to keep quiet about the environmental violations I've seen at work or I'll be fired.

Under state law in Louisiana, employees are protected from retaliation for disclosing or threatening to disclose environmental violations to a supervisor or a public body (such as the Department of Environmental Quality or other state or federal agency). The law also provides protection to employees who provide information to or testify before a public body that is conducting an investigation. Environmental whistleblowers are protected whether the environmental violator is their employer or another business with whom their employer has a business relationship.

MY BOSS SAYS . . . he's terminating me because of the quality of my work, but my work has always been excellent. I think he's discriminating against me because of my age.

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act ("ADEA") prohibits age discrimination against people who are age 40 or older. If you are under 40, the ADEA does not protect you. The ADEA only applies to employers with 20 or more employees.
