Labor and Employment Law

Ghanem Law Firm: Labor and Employment Law
Labour law or "employment law") intercede the relationship between workers, employers, trade unions and the government. Labour law arose due to the demand for workers to have better conditions, the right to organize, or, alternatively, the right to work without joining a labour union, and the simultaneous demands of employers to restrict the powers of workers' many organizations and to keep labour costs low.
Collective labour law relates to the threefold relationship between employee, employer and union. Second, individual labour law concerns employees' rights at work and through the contract for work. The labour movement has been instrumental in the enacting of laws protecting labour rights in the 19th and 20th centuries. Labour rights have been integral to the social and economic development since the Industrial Revolution.

GLF deals with a variety of matters covering this relationship, including helping businesses comply with employment laws and regulations, managing disputes with employees, advising on wage and hour matters, and assisting with appropriate employment policies and procedures.

In addition to showing businesses how to reduce their risk of employment litigation, labor and employment attorneys can advise on the legal rights and responsibilities of the employer and the employee with regard to work related disputes. Finally, employment lawyers can also protect workers when their rights are being violated.
