What is Labor Law?
Labor law is intended to manage the working relationship between employees, employers, trade unions, and the government. There are two types of Labor Laws:
Collective Labor Law - A collective labor law is established as the relationship between an employee, employer, and their union.
Individual Labor Law - Individual labor law is specific to an employee’s rights as detailed in their contract for work.
Federal employment regulations are meant to define business owners’ responsibility to their employees. Labor Laws are an important part of business infrastructure, as they’re deliberately put in place to protect and help make sure that employees are safe in their workplaces. If an employer does not follow these regulations, the employee may be entitled to financial retribution.
States are allowed to have their own labor laws, however, they must comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act, which establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, and work leave.
Labor Law in Florida
Florida is an “At-Will'' employment state. This means, employees in the state work at will. That being said, it also means they can be terminated, from their work, at any time without cause. If for any reason, an employee is terminated for a cause, like discrimination, retaliation, or harassment, then legal action may be taken against an employer or company.
