AUBURN/OPELIKA AND GEORGIA EMPLOYMENT LAWYERS
Employment Law is the part of the law that governs the employer-employee relationship. This includes individual employment contracts, the application of tort and contract doctrines, and statutory regulation on issues such as the right to organize and negotiate collective bargaining agreements, protection from discrimination, wages and hours, and health and safety. Employment law comes from state and federal legislation that is specific in nature. It is important to know your rights under this area of the law.
Legislation from State and Federal governments provide definitions and guidelines for employment and associated legal issues. Among these provisions are the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA), various workman’s compensation laws, and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Experience with these matters is a must when you are making a choice in representation in these matters.
Employment law is a vast and complex area of the legal practice. Cases must be brought within specific time frames and in the proper court venue. Employment contracts could call for other alternative resolution possibilities such as mediation or arbitration.
