Louisiana residents who apply for and accept jobs should be able to feel that their employers respect them and ensure their rights are protected.

Such is the case at one gym in Louisiana according to allegations put forth in a lawsuit filed recently.

Wrongful termination and the law

The phrase "wrongful termination" has made its way into the spotlight in recent news -- and is one that is not taken lightly. Going hand in hand with the plethora of workplace harassment incidents that have surfaced, wrongful termination is an issue that affects employees across the state of Louisiana.

Few people ever head to work in Baton Rouge anticipating being fired. Yet employees are dismissed all the time, sometimes for reasons that many may view as being unwarranted. Most take great pride in their work, and would never purposefully do anything that would tarnish their reputations or jeopardize their employment status. There may be cases, however, were one's misinterpreted actions might be viewed as a fireable offense. If one feels as though the contextual misrepresentation of what he or she did was never considered in his or her dismissal, then he or she may be justified in contesting it.

When Baton Rouge residents hear news of wrongful termination lawsuits, they may likely assume them to involve complaints surrounding an event (or series of events) in which an employee supposedly took a stand on a issue or refused to perform an action out of a matter of principle that ultimately was at odds with want his or her employer wanted. While such scenarios might account for a good number these types of cases, there are also those situations where procedural discrepancies might have contributed to one's firing. If one knew that he or she was in danger of losing his or her job, yet had been promised the opportunity to defend him or herself before action was taken, then it may be easy to understand why he or she would want to bring action against his or her employer.

Most in Baton Rouge likely feel a strong sense of loyalty towards their employers. That loyalty comes from these companies providing them with jobs that net the compensation and benefits needed to support themselves and their families. Thus, it may be easy to understand why one would be hesitant to come forward if and when he or she notices improprieties at the workplace. Not only may there be fear that blowing the whistle on corporate or professional wrongdoing could harm their companies, but people might also reasonably be concerned that doing so could invite retaliation from their employers. 

Pregnancy discrimination and the law

With 40 years behind the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, one might assume women no longer face discrimination while planning to expand a family. Unfortunately, amidst the #MeToo movement and other recent shifts in public attitudes toward harassment in general, a struggle in the workplace nevertheless affects countless female employees. Some Louisiana workers may be unfamiliar with the laws that protect pregnant women, as well as the current outlook of this problem.

The rundown of pregnancy discrimination

There are enough challenges already involved in bringing a child into the world, but when an employer refuses to assist with the process at work, matters can become serious. Louisiana workers at any stage of pregnancy understand that this life chapter requires a considerable amount of time, dedication and planning. Those who have become victim to an employer's unfair treatment as a result of pregnancy may decide to seek legal action.
