Labor & Employment Law

Labor and Employment Law in Louisiana

New Orleans attorneys committed to enforcement of the law

Employment and labor laws govern all aspects of the relationships between employers and employees. While many have been designed to protect the rights of employees, these laws maintain a balance of fairness and equity between employers and employees that is vital to the health of all businesses. They require attorneys to be knowledgeable about such issues as human resource guidelines, wage and hour statutes, occupational safety and health, workers compensation, and anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws.
