There are dozens of federal labor and employment laws and each state has its own labor and employment laws as well.

All in, there are hundreds of labor and employment regulations that exist and no company and no employee can be expected to know the ins-and-outs of each of them. The Labor and Employment Practice at Brach Eichler knows these laws and regulations and can guide you – whether an employer or employee – through the maze of rules that apply to the workplace, and that guidance is provided to you accurately and clearly, without being mired in legalese.
