Trump argues for the elimination of federal waterways oversight

On Dec. 12, 2017, the Trump administration announced plans to reduce federal oversight over tributary and wetlands pollution. This marked a big win for farmers, fracking companies and builders who have been forced to adhere to the Clean Water Act (CWA) regulations regarding waste and water usage for decades.

How can you minimize fraudulent workers' compensation claims?

Employers walk a fine line when it comes to handling worker injuries. They may want to take care of an employee who has gotten hurt or become ill on the job. However, they also want to weed out those who attempt to make false injury reports. There are a number of measures that you can implement when hiring your staff and when an employee files a claim to make sure that you don't get taken advantage of.

Your criminal record can affect your ability to win child custody

If you ask any family law judge in Louisiana what their responsibility is when deciding a heated custody dispute, they'll tell you that it's to make a decision that's in the child's best interests. Before deciding what's ideal for them, they'll often consider their gender, age, family relationships, school affiliations and even sometimes their own wishes. A judge will want to know about a mom's or dad's fitness to be a parent as well.

Louisiana gets another drop in compensation insurance rates

There are many pitfalls for even the most conscientious worker focusing on safety. Many jobs in Louisiana, such as short-haul trucking and industrial fishing, have some of the highest injury rates of industries around the country. The state is also a center of offshore drilling, a type of resource extraction with the highest death rate.
