What Is Employment Law?

Employment law governs the rights and duties of employers and workers. Also referred to as labor law, these rules are primarily designed to keep workers safe and make sure they are treated fairly, although laws are in place to protect employers’ interests as well.Whether you are entering the job market for the first time or were recently terminated, it is important to understand your rights as a worker.

Both federal and state governments have enacted a wide range of employment laws protecting employees from discriminatory treatment, unfair labor practices, unsafe work conditions, and more.

Employment laws are based on federal and state constitutions, legislation, administrative rules, and court opinions. A particular employment relationship may also be governed by contract. 

This section provides in-depth resources on all phases of the employment process -- from the interview and hiring stage to promotion and termination. In addition, you'll find information about privacy in the workplace, wage and hour laws, workplace safety, family leave policies, and detailed advice on hiring an employment lawyer.

Employment law is a broad area encompassing all areas of the employer/employee relationship except the negotiation process covered by labor law and collective bargaining. See, Labor Law & Collective Bargaining and Arbitration. Employment law consists of thousands of Federal and state statutes, administrative regulations, and judicial decisions. Many employment laws (e.g., minimum wage regulations) were enacted as protective labor legislation.

American labor laws trace back to public outcry against the oppressive practices of the industrial revolution. In the early 20th century, the first laws were passed to compensate injured workers, establish a minimum wage, create a standard work week, and outlaw child labor. In the 1960s and ‘70s, Congress acted to prohibit discrimination and unsafe work conditions. Current issues involve employee health care and equal pay for men and women

Other employment law issues involve workplace conditions. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, for example, requires employers to provide a safe workplace by adhering to national safety standards. Failing to do so can lead to fines and civil liability.

Employment Law Attorneys

If you or a loved one is involved in an employment law dispute, it's in your best interests to consult with an attorney. Since employment is such a broad area of the law, employment lawyers typically specialize in one or a few aspects of practice. It's therefore important for you to seek out a lawyer who is experienced in the relevant area of employment law. For example, if you feel that you've been the victim of workplace discrimination, you should seek out an attorney who has experience handling the type of discrimination claim you're bringing. On the other hand, if you're looking to appeal a workers' compensation decision, you should find an attorney who is versed in the administrative procedures involved in workers' compensation law.
