Workers Compensation Laws: Louisiana

Thomson Reuters Practical Law recently published “Workers’ Compensation Laws: Louisiana,” a Q&A guide to workers’ compensation law for employers in Louisiana, which was written by Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett attorneys, Alan G. Brackett, Patrick J. Babin and Simone H. Yoder.

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.)

Alan, Patrick and Simone have all been included in New Orleans Magazine Top Lawyers. Alan has been included in Super Lawyers and Patrick and Simone have been included in Super Lawyers Rising Stars for workers’ compensation. Alan is also a fellow of the College of Workers Compensation Lawyers.
