Yes. Although Louisiana does recognize a claim for improper use of name and likeness as part of the tort of invasion of privacy, an employer can make participation in publicity for the business a condition of employment. This result may be different, however, if the employer imposes the requirement in a discriminatory manner or to embarrass or harm particular employees. The foregoing is intended as legal information concerning the question asked, but is not intended as legal advice upon which the requesting party may rely in guiding their actions. Rather, the requesting party should consult an attorney for a personal consultation and advice for a full consideration of their situation and rendition of legal advice.
