Louisiana FMLA Guidelines For Employers

Louisiana FMLA And Leave Law Guidelines And Requirements

The Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that applies to employer organizations with 50 or more employees for 20 or more workweeks in the current or previous calendar year.

The Family & Medical Leave Act does not take the place of other sources of leave, including Louisiana's FMLA and other state leave laws. To the extent an organization subject to the FMLA is also subject to a state leave law, it must comply with both the FMLA and the state leave law.

The challenge in coordinating compliance with federal and state law is that the state leave laws may differ from FMLA law in employee eligibility criteria, as well as the length and type of protection.FMLA Training & Certification Program

Louisiana's FMLA And Other Leave Laws

Like employers in other states, Louisiana employers must follow the federally-mandated Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which requires eligible employees to take unpaid leave under specific rules.

In addition, Louisiana employment discrimination law requires employers with 25 or more employees to allow employees who are temporarily disabled by pregnancy and childbirth to take time off from work. Under this law, employees may take: up to six weeks off for a normal pregnancy and childbirth; up to four months off for more disabling pregnancies.
