Protecting civil rights regarding reverse discrimination issues

There is not really a specific legal term under federal law that defines reverse discrimination. However, when civil rights claims are filed regarding issues pertaining to this reference, they typically fall under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. However, many people mistakenly believe this law is meant only to protect minority groups. Anyone in Louisiana or another state who experiences reverse discrimination in the workplace is protected under Title VII.

Civil rights: Every worker has the right to work in peace

No matter what type of work you do in Louisiana, you can reasonably expect that your employer will make sure you have a peaceful working environment. That is not to say that some jobs are not naturally stressful but that your employer is legally obligated to make sure no one is violent or discriminates against you in the workplace. The U.S. Constitution protects your civil rights so that you do not have to suffer in a hostile atmosphere caused by discrimination.

Civil rights: Were you injured in a hostile work environment?

When a Louisiana resident shows up for work each day, he os she can reasonably expect a safe work environment. Every worker is protected by civil rights against discrimination and hostility in the workplace. If someone is acts in such a way so as to impede another person's ability to carry out his or her duties in a peaceful, nonviolent atmosphere, there may be grounds for filing a hostile work environment complaint.
