Employees are entitled to equal protection when on the job. In addition, discrimination on the basis of age, sex or religion should never be used by an employer when selecting the best candidate for a job. This is as true in Louisiana as anywhere else in the country.
Unfortunately, many organizations are now using social media websites to find and retrieve information about job candidates, including details about age, sex, religion, political outlook and sexual orientation. In more ways than one, these are violations of workers' rights.
