On June 21, 2022, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards signed into law legislation prohibiting employment discrimination on the basis of hairstyles or textures historically associated with race.
Under Louisiana law, noncompetition agreements may limit competition only as to business similar to that of the former employer. The provision in Advanced Medical Rehab, L.L.C. v. Manton, the court found, violated La. R.S. 23:921 as it prohibited Manton from employment in the practice of marketing for any business, not merely marketing medical services for medical clinics.
