Employment Law

Introduction

This guide discusses how to research employment law—the law concerning all aspects of work except labor law (the relations among employees, employers, and unions) and employment discrimination law (the law concerning discrimination on the basis of race, sex, national origin, religion, or other protected classes).

Employment law includes a variety of topics, including employment contracts, workplace safety, wage and hour law, unemployment compensation, workers' compensation, and employee benefits.
