By law, the state of Louisiana requires all employers to provide worker’s compensation insurance for their employees. A business can face severe fines, criminal prosecution, and/or lose their right to operate within the state if they don’t have this type of protection.
Employers must take certain precautions, such as paying medical bills and replacing lost wages if an employee is injured on the job or becomes sick while working. Always remember that it is your responsibility as an employer to keep your staff safe by providing and maintaining a proper working environment, as well as providing adequate worker’s compensation coverage.
