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. 

Join LegalShield now and be on the phone with a labor lawyer in 4 hours or less after initial contact.

Diffuse Labor Disputes Before they Turn Into Lawsuits

  • 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)

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.
