Louisiana Wage and Overtime Law

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sets the “floor” minimum wage for eligible workers in the U.S. But, many states and some local governments set their own minimum wage. Workers are entitled to be paid the highest minimum wage that applies where they work, whether it is set by federal, state, or local law. 

Louisiana does not have its own minimum wage law. Therefore, employees in Louisiana are entitled to earn at least the federal minimum wage, $7.25 an hour.
