Detailing Louisiana's whistleblower protections

Many from Baton Rouge have come to members of our team here at Robert B. Landry III, PLC wrestling with the issue of whether or not they should report statutory and/or regulatory violations made by their employers. If you have witnessed such actions, your loyalty to your employer and the gratitude you feel for all it has done for you and your family may be what is holding you back. Yet if you are like most, your reluctance has more to do with the fear that you may be retaliated against if you come forward. 

More employees are calling out companies for discrimination

Everyone deserves the same chance to succeed in his or her chosen profession. No employer should hold you back because of your race, gender, religion or other status protected by Louisiana and/or federal law. If you believe you suffered from discrimination due to one or more of these factors, you have the right to file a complaint.

Men are also victims of sexual harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace targets victims in many industries throughout the United States. In 2018, over 13,000 incidents of sexual harassment were reported to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the highest number in over 7 years. This number is thought to be even larger as many cases go unreported. Yet, not all cases involve women as victims. A growing number of men have reported being victims of sexual harassment at work by women managers or co-workers.

What impact has MeToo made on U.S. workplaces?

Whether you are male or female, you are likely aware that the topic of sexual harassment has gained a lot of media attention over the past year. This has happened not just in Louisiana but across the nation and is in large part due to what has been coined the MeToo movement. There have been laws in place that make harassment in the workplace illegal for some time now yet many people assert that sexual harassment or other types of sexual misconduct continue to be a problem.

Expecting fair warning from your employer before termination

If you have been terminated from your job in Louisiana, you should have had plenty of warning from your employer that provided information about what was going to happen and why things were happening the way they were. At Robert B. Landry III, PLC, we are experienced in helping employees recognize when they have been wrongfully terminated from their job.
