Labor and employment laws affect the entire legal relationship between employers and employees, beginning with the initial hiring process and expanding into every facet of daily operations, including job descriptions, wages, promotions, reviews, terminations, benefits, mergers and acquisitions, as well as the successful resolution of disputes pertaining to unfair labor practices and discrimination. Because the laws that apply to the labor and employment relationship are found at all levels of government–federal, state, county and even city–making sense of these oftentimes conflicting requirements is more of a challenge than ever for today’s employers.
On many occasions, employers seek to “do the right thing” and yet don’t realize they might be in violation of the law.
