Labor & Employment Law
Employment law was always meant to serve as a regulatory process, effectively overseeing the rights and duties between employers and workers. Also known simply as the labor law, the set of regulations contained in it are primarily devised to keep workers safe and make sure they are being treated fairly.
Of course, for achieving a mutually beneficial balance of things, these laws are also here ensure that the employers’ interests are as administered and upheld just as thoroughly.
Still the main task of the labor law is to mediate the working processes between workers (employees), employers, trade unions and the government. Collective labor law relates to the tripartite relationship practiced between employee, employer and union.
