Louisiana Age Discrimination Poster Required
The Age Discrimination is an equal opportunity law poster by the Louisiana Office Of Human Resources. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in Louisiana, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.
This poster must be posted in a conspicuous place where all employees will see it. This poster describes what age discrimination is and how employees can report age discrimination in Louisiana. Employees that feel they are being discriminated against in the workplace are encouraged to report to the Louisiana Commission on Human Rights.
