§665.  Complaint procedure

A.  An employee who in good faith believes that her employer is in violation of this Chapter shall submit written notice of the alleged violation to the employer.  An employer who receives such written notice from an employee shall have sixty days from receipt of the notice to investigate the matter and remedy any violation of this Chapter.  If an employer remedies the violation in a manner that complies with the statute and within the time provided herein, the employee may not bring any action against the employer pursuant to this Chapter except as provided in Subsections B and C of this Section.

B.  If an employer fails to resolve the dispute to the satisfaction of such employee within the time provided herein, the employee may file a complaint with the commission requesting an investigation of the complaint pursuant to R.S. 51:2257.

C.  If the commission finds evidence of discriminatory, retaliatory or other adverse employment action on the part of the employer in violation of this Chapter but is unable to resolve or mediate the dispute, or fails to render a decision as to the dispute, or issues a finding of no discrimination on the part of the employer, the employee may institute a civil suit in the Nineteenth Judicial District Court.
