Employment & Labor

Employment Law is civil law that sets forth the rules and regulations governing the employer-employee relationship. It may include background checks, hiring and firing concerns, pensions, employee benefits and compensation. Labor Law includes issues such as labor unions, collective bargaining, workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, wage and hour requirements, the minimum wage, OSHA (Occupational Health & Safety Act) and Workers’ Compensation. Federal statutes have also been enacted to protect vulnerable employees in the workplace, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Employee protection includes the prohibition against discrimination based upon race, color, religion, age, disability, gender or national origin. Labor Law traditionally refers to the relationship between employees and employers, trade unions and the government.
