Notice of Public Hearing Concerning the Occupation of Outside Helper on a Motor Vehicle

Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held by the Louisiana Workforce Commission’s Office of Workforce Development on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2011, 5:30 P.M., at 1001 North 23rd Street, Administration Building, 4th Floor Meeting Room, Baton Rouge, LA 70804. The public hearing will be held to obtain views as to whether the occupation of outside helper on a motor vehicle should be declared as a hazardous occupation for minors and thus be prohibited. Pursuant to R.S. 23:161, such a hearing must be held should it become necessary to declare an occupation, not already listed under Louisiana’s Minor Labor Laws, as being hazardous, or injurious to the life, health, safety, or welfare of minors.

The public and interested parties are invited to attend. For those persons who are unable to attend the public hearing, written statements and comments may be submitted beginning Sept. 3, 2011, and will be accepted through Sept. 13, 2011.
