Both employers and staffing agencies in Louisiana and throughout the country are responsible for ensuring that temporary workers are kept safe. They could both be held liable if a worker is not properly trained or if other safety guidelines are ignored.

In some cases, they are asked to do jobs without adequate descriptions of their responsibilities.
