Program H: Worker Protection Program

Program Authorization: R.S. 23:1

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Worker Protection Program is to serve, support and protect the rights and interests of Louisiana’s workers through the administration and enforcement of state workers protection statues and regulations.

The goal of the Worker Protection Program is to ensure that every Louisiana worker is afforded protection from work related abuses which violates state statues regulating apprenticeship training, private employment services, child labor, and costs of company required medical exams or drug tests.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).

 

 

 

RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM

SOURCE OF FUNDING

This program is funded with General Fund and Fees and Self-generated Revenues. The General Fund will assist in covering the operational cost of this program. The Fees and Self-generated Revenues consist of monies collected as a 5% penalty (for a maximum of 5 months) and 1% per month interest assessed on employers who are delinquent in the payment of their contributions to the Unemployment Trust Fund. The money is placed in a special account in the State Treasury to be expended for cost of administration which is not otherwise payable from Federal Funds. In addition, fees are collected from private employment agencies.
