House Committee Contact Sheet for HB 402 by Rep. Seabaugh
To find out more about this bill, view the EQLA and Louisiana Progress HB 402 policy memo
Here’s a visual representation of how HB 402 would work from Louisiana Progress and EQLA.
Please contact members of the House Labor and Industrial Relations Committee and ask them to oppose HB 402 by Rep. Seabaugh. The bill will make it more difficult for LGBT people in Louisiana to win lawsuits over harassment and discrimination in the workplace, and could force them to pay damages and court costs to their employer when their cases are dismissed. This would add financial insult to injury for LGBT people who have already suffered discrimination at work!
Before you call or email, check this page to see if any of the committee members represent your district: http://www.legis.la.gov/legis/FindMyLegislators.aspx. You do not need to live in his or her district to call, but members always pay special attention to feedback from their own constituents, so it may help if you’re able to say that you live in their district. You can and should call and email every member of the committee.
When you call, you need only to say the following: “Hi, my name is ___________ and I am a resident of ___________. I am calling to ask Rep. ___________ to OPPOSE HB 402 by Rep. Seabaugh. The Legislature should not make it harder for anyone in Louisiana to keep a decent job and seek fair treatment at work.”
After you contact these legislators, please let us know what they tell you.
