Labor & Employment
Labor law focuses on the relationship between employees and unions under the National Labor Relations Act. Employment law addresses relations between employers and individual employees, including charges of discrimination.
Regulated working hours, minimum wage, child labor restrictions and laws governing safe work conditions are all examples of Wage & Hour Law and OSHA Law.
