University faces more discrimination charges among faculty

University of Louisiana at Lafayette continued its streak of discrimination-related news stories recently, just one week after it terminated its softball coach over allegations of creating a "hostile learning and working environment." Now, four female faculty members of the B.I. Moody III College of Business Administration have filed complaints with the school though the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EOCC).

Can you keep your business in divorce?

Study finds Louisiana's divorce rate is among the highest

If you face a demonstrably wrongful termination, you may have grounds to sue your former employer for damages and other remedies. However, not all wrongful termination suits are well-grounded, such as the suit brought against a small Baptist college by its former president that was recently decided in favor of the employer.
