Workers Compensation Laws: Louisiana

This Q&A addresses Louisiana laws requiring workers’ compensation coverage, including the benefits process, penalties for an employer’s failure to obtain workers’ compensation coverage, and anti-retaliation provisions. (Federal, local, or municipal law may impose additional or different requirements.)
