Louisiana’s Unemployment Office

In March 2016, Renita Ward Williams was appointed as Director of the Louisiana unemployment office. Williams oversees the distribution of unemployment insurance to employers and employees across the state. The Louisiana Workforce Commission was restructured in 2008, with a new set of core values that include Integrity, Accountability, Teamwork, Adaptability, Improvement, and Open Communication. The LWC’s website makes it easy to file for unemployment online or file for unemployment over the phone with an automated system. Both options are available 24-hours, 7 days a week.
