Is Your Business Compliant?
Labor law is of great importance because they offer protections to both the employee and employer. Compliance with these laws offers benefits to society, both on the interpersonal and financial levels. Labor law was created to provide right and responsibilities for workers. Labor law primarily concerns the rights and responsibilities of unionized employees. Labor law can also refer to the set of standards for working conditions and wage laws. These laws, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, prohibits child labor, and sets a minimum wage.
