Louisiana Affirmative Action: What you need to know

The Louisiana Employment Discrimination Law prohibits employment practices that discriminate on the basis of age (40 years or older), race, color, religion, sex, disability, national origin, pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions, sickle cell trait, or protected genetic information (LA Rev. Stat. Sec. 23:302et seq.).
The Law covers employers with 20 or more employees (except in instances of pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions, which covers employers with 25 or more employees) within the state working 20 or more calendar weeks in the current or preceding calendar year.
The Law does not require private employers to take affirmative action, but it does contain provisions protecting employers that do have affirmative action plans (LA Rev. Stat. Sec. 23:332). The Law defines the term “minority” and specifies that an employer may not be sued under the fair employment law for employment practices carried out pursuant to an affirmative action plan.

Where a finding of discrimination by a parish or municipality is made by a local commission, that commission may order that an affirmative plan be adopted (LA Rev. Stat. Sec. 51:2238).
