When most people think of Labor Law, they envision labor unions and factory workers. However, Labor Laws and Employment Laws are often used interchangeably. Labor Law is so important in our society that laws such as 29 U.S.C. 411 provide a Bill of Rights for employees. Labor Law can involve such United States Constitutional protections as freedom of speech, freedom of association, equal protection, the 13th Amendment, and workplace privacy under the Fourth Amendment. In addition to these important rights, laws provide protections for workers and limitations for the benefits of employers. It is equally important that both employees and employers have knowledge of the laws and their benefits and limitations.
These important protections and the limits of those protections are often not known by workers and employers.
