What is Employment law?

Employment law is a broad area encompassing all areas of the employer/employee relationship except the negotiation process covered by labor law and collective bargaining. Employment law is governed by thousands of federal and state statutes, administrative regulations, and judicial decisions. Some of the topics included in employment law include:

  • Collective Bargaining
  • Employment Discrimination
  • Unemployment Compensation
  • Pensions
  • Workplace Safety
  • Worker’s Compensation

What is Labor Law?

Labor law primarily concerns the rights and responsibilities of unionized employees. Some groups of employees find unions beneficial, since employees have a lot more power when they negotiate as a group rather than individually. Unions can negotiate for better pay, more convenient hours, and increased workplace safety. However, unions do not have limitless power. Leaders must treat all union members fairly and refrain from restricting union members’ rights to speech, assembly, and voting powers.

Employers also must follow specific rules when dealing with union members. For example, employers may only negotiate with designated union representatives and must carefully any agreement between the union and the employer.
