Employee Labor Law Rights

Employee Rights Facts and The Law
How Equal Opportunity Affects You

Employment is an agreement between the employer and the employee in a business.  The employee provides labor or expertise to the business in return for wages or for other forms of payment such as food or rent.  Jobs can also be offered by individuals or other entities in need of labor or expertise from others.

The typical contract for employment in the U.S. is an "at-will" contract that may be terminated at any time by either the employer or employee for any reason.  Employees have certain employment labor rights (also known as Equal Opportunity Laws) granted to them as laborers.  Violations of these rights in the workplace often result in a lawyer filing litigation against the employer on behalf of the employee often seeking reinstatement to their former position or a comparable job.  Also, lost wages are usually included as part of the compensation requested by the employee.

Employees also have been given specific rights by law from the states and the federal government with regard to their employment.  These laws form the basis for employee rights in the U.S.  Such laws provide employees with the right to a minimum wage, the right to safe working conditions, the right to protection from racial discrimination and other specific rights.

The federal laws providing employee rights can be found primarily in the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Medical Leave Act of 1993.  Under these laws employees are provided with protection from certain forms of discrimination and are provided with minimum wage and overtime pay rights.  There are many local and state statutes providing employees with additional rights and protections.

Employee rights laws are enforced in the U.S. by the appropriate state and federal courts.
