The Louisiana Employment Discrimination Law prohibits employment practices, including hiring, that discriminate on the basis of age (40 years or older), race, color, religion, sex, disability, national origin, genetic information, sickle-cell trait, and pregnancy (including childbirth and related medical conditions) (LA Rev. Stat. Sec. 23:302et seq.). The Law covers employers with 20 or more employees, except for the pregnancy discrimination provision, which applies to employers with 25 or more employees. The Law also applies to insurers with respect to the appointment of agents.
