The Bayou State works hard, and it’s good to know the law works hard for us as well. Louisiana employment laws identify minimum wage, the overtime rate, and payday requirements, and regulate issues like union membership and organization. State statutes also dictate what holidays we get off, and whether our employer has to pay a holiday rate if we work on those days. Employment laws can even protect employees, known as “whistleblowers,” who report illegal or unethical conduct on the part of their employers.
