Employment Law governs labor relations and employment issues, such as: Discrimination at workplace, sexual harassment, occupational safety, wage disputes, wrongful termination, workers' compensation and so on. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Age Discrimination in Employment Act) and many other federal and state laws are devised and promulgated to protect employees from discriminations based on race, sex, age, disability, color, creed, or national origin. Workers’ Compensation laws entitle employees to certain benefits when injured in a work related accident, regardless of fault. Most employers are mandated by law to acquire Workers' Compensation Insurance for their employees: In case of an injury, you may receive temporary or total disability benefits plus medical bill payments, depending on the scope of your injuries, while you are unable to work. Federal Statute, Family and Medical Leave Act, permits employees to leave their employments for up to 12 weeks for medical or certain family issues, without the fear of losing their jobs. However, most businesses are more concerned about profits rather than putting the rights and interests of their employees’ front and center...
