Employment law is a broad area encompassing all areas of the employer and employee relationship. Employment law consists of thousands of federal and state statutes, administrative regulations, and judicial decisions. Many employment laws were enacted as protective labor legislation. Other employment laws take the form of public insurance, such as unemployment compensation.
Labor law encompasses negotiation between employers and employees and the process of collective bargaining. The goal of labor laws is to equalize the bargaining power between employers and employees. The laws primarily deal with the relationship between employers and unions. The area of labor law is governed by both federal law, state law and judicial decisions. It is also governed by regulations and decisions of administrative agencies. States are preempted from interfering with federal statutory law or with the guidelines promulgated by agencies established under federal law or by the U.S. Constitution.
Areas of labor and employment law include: ADA, Affirmative Action, COBRA, Discrimination, ERISA, General, Hiring & Firing, (Hours, Sick Leave & Vacations), Independent Contractors, Legislation, NLRB, OSHA, Pensions & Plans, Retaliation, Sexual Harassment, Stock Options & Purchase Plans, Unions, and Workers' Compensation.
