Get Legal Advice for Labor Law

Lawsuits filed against employers under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are up over 417% since 1997, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Do you have the labor law support you need?

The difference between Labor Law and Employment Law

Employment laws regulate the relationship between an employer and individual employees and deal with issues like employment discrimination, harassment and making sure employees are paid for the work they have completed.

Labor laws regulate the relationship between employers and labor unions, such as the AFL-CIO. Labor laws cover topics like the right to unionize and the negotiation and enforcement of collective bargaining agreements.

Regardless of which laws apply to the situation with which you’re dealing, a small business plan from Legal Shield includes unlimited phone consultation with an experienced lawyer to help you understand your rights and determine the next steps you should take.

Diffuse labor disputes before they turn into lawsuits

Labor-related legal issues can be difficult for small businesses to deal with on their own. An experienced lawyer can help you navigate your way to a positive resolution as they understand the intricacies of common labor laws such as the following.

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH)
  • Black Lung Benefits Act (BLBA)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)

As a LegalShield member, you don’t have to stress and guess about what the complicated federal and state labor laws mean or how to defend yourself. Simply contact your lawyer and they can not only provide you with valuable legal advice, they can make phone calls and write letters to diffuse small labor disputes before they turn into huge headaches.
