How Labor And Employment Laws Protect Workers
Most people spend at least a third of every day at work; half if we don’t count time asleep. Both state and federal laws provide protections for employees so that the place where we spend most of our time does not infringe on our basic rights. From the hiring process to the everyday conditions under which you do your job, there are rules in place to protect you.
