Separation From Employment: Louisiana
Federal law and guidance on this subject should be reviewed together with this section.
- Louisiana does not have a specific definition of cause for terminating an employment contract, but prematurely terminating an employment contract without cause may expose employers to damages. See Terminations With and Without Cause.
- Private employers may set COVID-19 vaccine mandates, including termination as a potential consequence, without violating the employment-at-will doctrine. See COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate Requirements.
