Louisiana requires new notice for unemployment insurance


Author: ADP Admin/Tuesday, May 5, 2020/Categories: Compliance Corner , State Compliance Update, Louisiana

The Louisiana Workforce Commission has adopted an emergency rule that expands the unemployment insurance notice requirements.


Under existing law, employers must post a notice about the availability of unemployment insurance benefits.

Emergency Rule:

The emergency rule adopts an additional requirement that employers notify each individual employee within 24 hours of separation that:

  • Employees that meet the requirements for eligibility may file a UI claim in the first week that employment ends or work hours are reduced;
  • A UI claim may be filed by phone or online;
  • The LWC's toll-free phone number is 1-866-783- 5567 and web address is www.louisianaworks.net/hire for filing a UI claim or for assistance with claims.
  • Employees must provide the LWC with their full name, social security number, and work authorization (if not a U.S. citizen or resident).


The notice must be provided to employees in writing either via flyer, letter, email, or text message.

Note: The LWC will post a sample notice on its website for employers to use.

Compliance Recommendations:

Employers with employees in Louisiana must ensure compliance with the emergency rule. Please contact your dedicated service professional with any questions.
