Regulatory Assistance

LSBA's efforts to assist your business do not stop at the State Capitol.­ Our staff has experience working with regulatory agencies to resolve our member's problems.­ No one likes calling a state agency's customer service helpline, only to spend hours navigating through an automated calling service, and never actually speaking with a live person.­ Let our staff help you with your regulatory questions.­ Here are just a few examples of regulatory issues that we can assist you with:

  • Employee Compensation
    What the law requires, minimum wage, overtime pay, what counts as working, required records, child labor and industry specific issues.
  • Unemployment Compensation
    What unemployment compensation is, who has to pay & why, how your unemployment compensation tax rate is determined, how workers qualify for unemployment compensation benefits and how to prevent unemployment claims.
  • Workers' Compensation
    Who needs workers' compensation insurance, exemptions, reporting an injury, penalties, required records, how to save money on workers' compensation and discrimination.
  • Handling Worthless Checks
    Accepting checks, what information you should collect on a check, how to handle a worthless check and penalties for passing worthless checks.
  • Legislative Assistance
    Keep track of newly passed bills, and request a copies of bills that are of interest to you.
  • State Agency
    LSBA has put together a list of state and federal agencies, which includes contact information for your parish's local government.
