Effective August 1, 2021, Louisiana’s Employment Discrimination Act was amended to expressly require Louisiana employers with more than 25 employees to provide reasonable accommodation to employees with limitations resulting from pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, provided these limitations are known to the employer.

Covered employers must notify new and existing employees in writing of the obligations and rights set out in the amended legislation. New employees must be given notice at the start of employment. Existing employees must have received a written notice before December 1, 2021. Finally, the written notice must be “posted in a conspicuous place at an employer’s place of business in an area accessible to employees”. The Louisiana Workforce Commission published a template notice in English and Spanish on its website.

The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide on the subject. Specialist advice should be sought regarding your particular situation.
