What is Employment Law?
Employment law is a section of laws established to protect workers in order for individuals to retain the ability to earn a fair wage free from discrimination or intimidation. The first employment laws were recorded in the early 1900s to outlaw child labor and establish the standard work week and first minimum wage.
Employment law has evolved over the last century to include protections against unsafe work environments, protections for workers against discrimination, collective bargaining protections and family and medical leave standards.
As the laws have adapted to match changes in society and work standards, we constantly improve upon our own knowledge base to stay up to date on each and every adaptation of the law. We study current suits and outcomes to improve our expertise, recognizing that employment law is an ever-changing entity. It is this dedication that serves our clients well, ensuring the skill and legal expertise needed to win the best possible outcome for each case.
