Labor laws regulate the relationship between employers and labor unions, such as the AFL-CIO. Labor laws cover topics like the right to unionize and the negotiation and enforcement of collective bargaining agreements.

Employment laws regulate the relationship between an employer and individual employees and deal with issues like employment discrimination, harassment and complaints about compensation for work that was delivered.

Regardless of which laws apply to your situation, a small business plan from Legal Shield includes unlimited phone consultation with an experienced employment litigator to help you understand your rights, determine next steps and protect your business.
