Critical shortage advertising requirements
Previously, to declare a critical shortage under the 2010 RTW Law, employers had to advertise twice in their official journal that a shortage of certified teachers (or other critical shortage position) exists and the position(s) to be filled, as well as post the job notice at the career development office (or similar entity) of every post-secondary institution within a 120-mile radius of the employer’s governing authority.
La R.S. 11:710 still allows employing agencies to hire retirees in critical shortage positions; however, the advertising requirements have been modernized.
Employers are now advertising to place their district in a critical shortage rather than advertising per position. See the advertising requirements listed below.
