Unemployment Compensation Law

The Louisiana Revised Statutes containing the Unemployment Compensation Law are found in Title 23, Chapter 11, Sections 1471 through 1750.10. Most public libraries have a copy of the Louisiana Revised Statutes. However, you may also access these statutes through the Louisiana Legislature's Web site at

Clicking on “Louisiana Laws” on the menu bar on the left side of the Legislature's Web site's main screen will bring you to a search page for the laws. Since the site, at present, requires the user to access each individual section of the statute rather than allowing the user to scroll through the entire body of statutes, we have listed each applicable section below.

On the search page, select “RS” for the Law Body; enter “23” next to Title, Article, or Rule Number; enter the applicable number listed below for Section Number; and click on View to access the law.
