Labor & Employment Laws in Louisiana

New Orleans Business & Compliance Lawyers

Every business that has employees must be attentive to the management of workplace conflict and the avoidance of labor disputes. Maintaining a productive workforce is a critical component of your daily operations. Designed to protect the interests of both parties, federal and state laws carry significant penalties for failure to adhere to applicable regulations. Employees perform at their optimum when employers actively comply with the numerous state and federal laws that regulate the employee-employer relationship.

Labor and employment laws speak to issues such as:

  • Family and medical leave
  • Discrimination based on age, race, sex, national origin, religion and disability
  • Wrongful termination
  • Improper classification of workers as independent contractors or as exempt employees
  • Overtime and minimum wage violations
  • Workers compensation
  • Unemployment compensation
