Employment law is a very important field in relation to the workplace, as it exists as a means of protecting workers from unlawful acts or policies. Labor and employment law must cover a wide range of topics and is therefore a very involved profession with its own branch within the legal field.
It is vital that an expert in the field have a background in both law and employment standards. Employment litigation is a complex area and those within the field often act as attorneys, arbitrators, mediators, investigators, and trainers, with a comprehensive knowledge in employment policies, investigations, conflict management, business and labor law, employee contracts, and other employment issues.
There are also a set of legal acts in place to regulate important workplace policies and provide employee protection, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), the Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). The violation of these acts could be grounds for legal actions, in which case the services of an employment law expert would be a necessary means of determining what was violated and who was at fault. Other grounds for lawsuits could be discrimination or harassment taking place within the workplace, such as racial or sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, age discrimination, and other forms misconduct. There can also be legal issues with hours, wages, workers compensation, labor management, wrongful termination, or other workplace-related situations.
