The Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections

The Louisiana Department of Safety and Corrections (LDSC) is the first Louisiana state agency to achieve ESGR Five Star status as a supportive employer of it employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve. LDSC provides full benefits and a detailed human resources program for its activated military employees.

Secretary Richard Stalder set the standard of employer support by developing a computerized training program that instructs corrections personnel on the fundamentals of the USERRA Law. He personally encourages department employees to communicate with deployed Guardsmen and Reservists and writes personal letters to deployed employees at the time of their mobilization, especially during the holiday season.
