Labor Laws and Labor Law Lawyers
Labor law is a component of a larger set of laws known as employment laws. Employment laws govern all employment relations in the U.S. These particular laws prohibit discrimination against disability, age, skin color, nationality, sex, religion, and race. They ensure that the appropriate safety standards are in place for employees. Employment laws also allow programs that allow employees to be compensated when they get injured while on the job.
Labor laws are important because they help create fair employer-employee relationships for all parties. Labor law lawyers help employers and employees to resolve disputes when a workplace incident arises.
Other Illegal Employer Practices
When people are terminated for complaining about their wages, misconduct in the workplace, whistleblowing, or questionable practices related to the workplace, this is known as wrongful termination. This is illegal, and you are able to sue your employer for it.
Other causes for wrongful termination include:
- Being fired for being injured or sick,
- Being fired for or requesting disability,
- Your job was eliminated because you requested or expressed intent of taking maternity leave, and if
- You were discriminated against, intimidated, or lost hours after requesting maternity, disability or leave of absence.
If you were fired for being sick, Consumer Action Law Group may be able to help you sue for wrongful termination.
