Employment law generally revolves around state and federal laws and dispute resolution mechanisms that seek to protect the rights of employees and employers, prevent discrimination and promote safe working environments. Essentially, these laws govern the employer-employee relationship. It is indeed important for companies to be well aware of the employment law requirements in the countries in which they operate and to ensure that they are not in violation of those laws.

Employment law is not an area to be taken lightly as workers make up the backbone of the economy. When an employer breaches these rights and denies the workers their statutory entitlements, the possibility of it affecting the operations of a company is undoubtedly higher. To ensure that workers are not taken advantage of, trade unions and professional associations that have been established seek to protect and safeguard the rights and interests of their members.

For employers, it is not sufficient to know only a little about employment law or plead ignorance when issues arise. Instead, a careful and responsible employer will recognise the need to seek the help of an employment lawyer so that the employer can appropriately balance the interest of the business against the livelihood of their employees.

Employment law plays a pivotal role in ensuring that the rights of the employers and employees are well guarded and ensuring neither are taken advantage of in any employment situation.
