Employment Law for the Employer
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on May 23, 2017 in Employee Rights
It is estimated that more than 155 million Americans are employed in the United States and more than 11 million others are unemployed. Thousands of businesses across and country are employing millions whom they trust and ensure with their businesses.
There are approximately 180 labor laws in place to ensure that both employers and employees are covered in regards to wages, discrimination, the hiring process, and more. The Department of Labor is in charge of governing and regulating the large number of employment laws that are aimed to protect employers and employees.
Although most individuals will think of employee claims, employment laws are also there to protect employers from accusations made against them.
If you or a loved has been accused by a former or current employee of breaking an employment law, the accused may wish to seek legal counsel. Our employment law attorneys may be able to help you determine if you have a case, and if so, how to proceed.
