1.I'm a new employer in Louisiana. How do I know if I need workers' compensation insurance?
All public and private employers in Louisiana, with limited exceptions, are required to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage for their employees. Any person hired to perform services for remuneration, whether full or part-time, is considered an employee. There are few exemptions (PDF) to this requirement. If you are unsure, contact the Financial & Compliance section of the Office of Workers' Compensation Administration (OWCA).
