When Discrimination And Harassment Invades Your Job

At Haley & Associates in Baton Rouge, we fiercely defend the rights of employees in any industry. You have the right to feel safe at work and be granted the same opportunities as anyone else of your skill and experience. We see you, and we are here to listen to you.

Employers Must Be Held Responsible For Workplace Harassment

Between state law and federal laws like Title VII, employers in Louisiana are prohibited from discriminating based on:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Gender
  • National origin
  • Age
  • Genetic information
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission considers sexual harassment as a form of sex-based discrimination. Illegal behaviors include unwelcome sexual advances, verbal or physical sexual harassment, and requests or demands for sexual favors.
