Hello again Kenneth and thank you for that additional clarification of your question and the facts. Although, absent a subpoena as a part of litigation, your employer is not required to give you access to all of the evidence they used to make their decision in your termination, they are required to give you a Form ES-77 (Separation Notice) within 72 hours of your termination that does state, in general, the reason for your termination, as well as your pay information, etc. They are also required to send a copy to the Louisiana Workforce Commission. You can see the form that they must give you by going to: http://www.laworks.net/Downloads/UI/77form.pdf
If you do not receive that form within the 72 hours, then you can file a complaint with the LWC.
Also, if you believe that you were terminated because of your race, then you should immediately file a racial discrimination complaint with the Louisiana Commission on Human Rights and the EEOC
. You will also want to sit down with a local employment law
attorney to discuss your case in detail and see if they think you should wait for the agencies I mentioned to investigate and try to resolve your complaint or whether you should request a "Right to Sue Letter" and go ahead and file suit before they finish investigating your case.
Also, of course, you will want to file for unemployment benefits
if you need them. Although the employer may dispute
your eligibility by saying you were terminated for "cause," it will be their burden of proof to show that you intentionally, or through gross negligence, violated a workplace rule, standard or procedure, or failed to perform your job properly.
Please feel free to ask any related follow up question that you might have. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
