United States Labor law, also commonly known as employment law, covers all legal
aspects related to any relationship between an employer, employees, labor
unions, and the government. This broad term encompasses individual, collective,
and international labor law.

United States Department of Labor (DOL) - Labor Compliance Article
Labor Law concerns the rights of the worker as dictated by a contract between
the employer and the employee. The terms and conditions of the contract are
mostly following common law or legislation. For example, following state law,
contracts state that an employer may not dismiss their employee for illegal
reasons. Furthermore, minimum wage regulations also fall under individual labor
law. An employer may not legally pay any employee under the national minimum
wage, currently $7.25 per hour in the United States. However, some states have a
minimum wage set higher than the federal wage.

Collective Labor Law refers to relationships between the employer, their
employee, and the respective labor or trade union. These labor unions are
organized groups of employees, and they work to serve the best interests of
their members. With approval from union leadership, members of the union may
collectively participate in a strike. Without the union, individual employees
would not have the ability to “strike” because they would likely be let go
immediately. Although, it is not in an employer’s best interest to fire every
single employee when a union goes on strike. Thus, the power of an employer can
be met equally through the utilization of unions.

The history of Labor Law in the United States is fairly complex and can extend
back to the 1600s where one of the first recorded strikes took place. However,
the formalities of these laws seem to have emerged in tandem with the Industrial
Revolution between the late 1700s and the early 1800s. The shift from
smaller-scale production to much larger factories caused relationships between
employers and employees to shift too. Employees began to seek out better working
conditions, more suitable hours, as well as the right to join labor unions. In
addition to this, child labor became a pertinent, rising concern during the same
time period. These multiple factors pushed forward the aggressive movement forOccupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) - Labor Compliance Articlelabor
law reform in the United States.

The United States Department of Labor (DOL) manages and enforces close to 200
federal laws related to labor, employees, employers, and compliance.
Furthermore, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulates
all health conditions in most private industries. It is the responsibility of an
employer to guarantee their employees are in a safe, hazard-free working
environment. Both the DOL and OSHA require that certain notices are posted,
providing the necessary regulation information to their employees. Labor law
poster and OSHA poster requirement information can be found on the United States
Department of Labor website, as well as on any specific state Department of
Labor website. Below, you may find a list of all 50 states and their respective
