Louisiana is an “Employment at Will” state which means that you can quit your job for no reason and that your employer can fire you for no reason.
Since most people don’t quit their jobs for no reason, and since most people don’t get fired for no reason, it’s easy to see why “at will” has lots of exceptions.
The two main exceptions to employment at will are discrimination and retaliation. In most cases, if you can prove a case of retaliation or discrimination, your recovery will include:
- loss of earnings
- general damages
- punitive damages
- court costs and attorney’s fees
