Employment law is a broad area that controls how employers must treat employees, former employees, and applicants for employment that includes all areas of the relationship except negotiation and the bargaining process, which are covered by labor law.
Employment law encompasses a wide variety of issues such as:
• Pension Plans
• Occupational Safety
• SF Health Regulations
• Affirmative Action
• Discrimination in the Workplace
• Sexual Harassment
Employment lawyers can show businesses how to reduce their risk of employment litigation and how to comply with state and local labor laws. Employment lawyers can also help protect workers when their rights are being welded. Often an employment lawyer will concentrate on representing either workers or employers.
