Louisiana Sexual Harassment Training Requirements
While sexual harassment training in Louisiana is not specifically required by state statute, EEOC guidelines and court decisions from around the country have made clear that employers should provide workplace harassment training to all employees periodically.
The training should cover sexual harassment and all other forms of unlawful harassment related to federal and state protected characteristics.
Louisiana law prohibits workplace harassment and employment discrimination based on protected characteristics such the following:
age (40+), color, creed, disability, genetic information (including Sickle cell trait), national origin, race, religion, and sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and related conditions).
See La. Rev. Stat. s RS 23:301 et seq. Local ordinances may provide broader protections, so you should check the local Civil Rights Commission regulations applicable to your workplace.
