Complying With Louisiana Wage and Hour Laws

Gain an understanding of Louisiana’s unique wage and hour laws as well as avoidable mistakes. When it comes to pay practices, many Louisiana employers focus only on the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and ignore the strict requirements imposed by Louisiana’s wage-payment statutes. This frequently results in burdensome litigation and expensive legal exposure based on avoidable mistakes. This topic helps managers and practitioners a) understand the unique obligations imposed by Louisiana law upon hiring and terminating employees; b) revise bonus and commission policies to reduce personnel costs; c) evaluate vacation, PTO and other policies to minimize personnel costs and legal exposure; and d) identify what costs you can deduct lawfully from employees’ wages.
