The Louisiana House of Representatives Labor and Industrial Relations Committee held its first meeting of the session yesterday. Legislators introduced themselves to Louisiana Workforce Commission officials, including LWC Executive Director Ava Dejoie and OWC Director Sheral Kellar. The meeting included presentations from both leaders, with Kellar focusing on the general regulatory authority of the Office. Representative Chris Broadwater, Vice-Chairman of the Committee, asked Kellar several questions related to misclassification of workers, to which Kellar assured the Committee members that the OWC and the unemployment insurance section of the LWC consistently investigate accusations of employer fraud.
