Employment Law, also known as Labor Law, is the field of civil law that deals with making sure that relations between employers and their employees remain just and fair. Employment law handles topics that include unemployment compensation, workplace safety, collective bargaining, wages, job discrimination and wrongful termination. The Department of Labor is the chief governmental body that regulates workplace relations, but many states have supplementary regulations. Employment law is a vast field that emcompasses many governmental bodies and non-governmental organizations. Unfortunately, many employers fail to stay abreast of the latest developments and mistakenly breach the law without realizing it.
