THE HISTORY OF LASIE

The Louisiana Association of Self Insured Employers (LASIE) was formed in 1991 to promote and protect the right of businesses to self-insure. The organization serves as a spokesman at the state level on issues affecting self-insurers and workers' compensation, acts as a statewide information service and educational forum for Louisiana employers.

LASIE ADVOCATES THESE IDEAS 

  • Financially responsible employers should have the privilege of self-insuring

  • Compensation programs should be administered fairly and responsibly

  • Workers injured within the scope of their employment should receive adequate compensation and appropriate medical care

  • Disputed claims should be adjudicated promptly and impartially

  • The cost of providing compensation by the employer should be given proper economic consideration whenever compensation laws are considered.
