New Orleans Workplace Retaliation Lawyer
Protecting Louisiana Employees
Louisiana is an "at will" employment state. This means an employer can fire an employee for no reason at all. However, if your employer has retaliated against you or terminated your employment for complaining about unlawful behavior in the workplace, you may have cause for legal action.
At Farrugia Law Firm, LLC, we represent clients who have been affected by employer retaliation and wrongful termination. Although we understand how difficult it can be to speak up against your employer, we are committed to helping you achieve justice.
As an employee, you have a right to make complaints about discrimination, harassment and other unlawful conduct you encounter in the workplace. You also have a right to request certain benefits and report wrongdoing. An employer who retaliates against you for making complaints and voicing your concerns violates your rights. This retaliation can take many forms, including:
- Denial of opportunity for advancement
- Relocation to undesirable locale
- Wrongful termination
- Other negative consequences
If you are wondering whether you have been a victim of unlawful employer retaliation, we can help. After thoroughly evaluating your situation, lawyer Victor Farrugia will provide powerful, experienced and diligent legal representation against the at-fault parties.
Louisiana Wrongful Termination
If you have been terminated from your employment for an illegal reason such as complaining about discrimination, harassment or unlawful employment practices, you need an experienced attorney on your side. Federal and state laws, as well as whistleblower protections, offer a clear avenue for individuals who have been illegally fired from their jobs.
If you believe you are being fired or set up to be fired for unlawful reasons, there are steps you can take. Make any complaints in writing, keeping a copy for your personal records. If your employer has a policy for handling complaints, be sure to comply with it. Also, retain copies of all documents pertaining to your performance.
