The process of looking for the right home for a Louisiana family is not easy. It can be a complex and lengthy process to find the right place, make an offer and negotiate. Buying a home can be an exciting process, but buyers would be wise to think long term at every step, ensuring they do not allow their emotions or the appeal of a home to expose them to risks in the future.
Federal and Louisiana laws protect employees who become pregnant by prohibiting their employers from firing them, harassing them or taking other negative actions simply because of their pregnancy or plans to take maternity leave. Any of these actions constitutes gender discrimination and can lead to serious consequences for the employer. Nevertheless, it is still common to hear of discrimination lawsuits alleging employers fired women who had recently announced their pregnancy.
