Part Three: What are your rights when your property is taken?
Perhaps it has been a lifelong dream of yours to start your own business. Instead of continuing to wait for every condition to be just right, you have decided to take the plunge. You know that you must make numerous decisions before you can even open your doors.
If you own or work for a company in Louisiana and are looking to hire an external agency to help you with some advertising campaigns, you will likely have to share sensitive business information with them.

One of these laws is the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Many people may be familiar with this law to some degree, but they may not realize that there are two important components to this law.
