Employment laws and regulations have grown considerably over the last decades. They initially arose from the demand of employees for better pay, better work conditions and better treatment by their employers, but have expanded considerably from those beginnings. Employment laws are now not only put into place to address the legal rights of employees and employers but to establish general standards that must be followed. On the Plaintiff’s side, the relevant laws include those involve payment of wages, overtime, minimum wage, discrimination, providing benefits and enforcement of employment agreements. On the Defendant/Employer side, legitimate defenses involving employee misconduct, fraud, and co-worker harassment are equally important to maintaining proper work environments through the law.
