Labor laws are a set of legal rules that address the rights and restrictions of all workers. Two groups are used to classify the labor laws. Collective and individual are the two groups of labor laws. The relationship between employer, employees, and association are described by the collective labor laws. There are other groups of collective labor laws also. Collective laws are divided into other groups which are strikes, pickets, trade unions, and workplace involvement.
Trade union laws are not found in some countries. The trade union laws require unions to follow some specific procedures before acting on some things. Definition of when the strike is legal or illegal is done by the strike labor laws. Picketing is another type of collective labor law that is used during the strikes. It makes those who are striking to be known. Picketing law has several legal guidelines that should be followed. Workplace involvement law describes the ideas that employers will use to consult their workers if something arises in the company.
While employees are working they will enjoy some rights and freedoms that are described by the individual laws. Contract of employment, minimum wage, working time, health and safety, anti-discrimination and unfair dismissal from work are some of the things that are included in individual laws. Both the employer and employee have rights and obligations, and there are laws that deal with contracts of employment. Contract agreements are these types of laws that the two parties set. The employer may state in the contract that he will dismiss an employee for any reason so long as it is legal. When an employer discharges an employee because of specific legal reasons, legal actions will not be taken against him.
The minimum wage or amount a worker will get per hour is also defined by the labor laws. The labor laws are not the same in every country. Countries also, have different working time laws. Working time laws describes the time the workers will work every day in a company. Workers are allowed to work for twelve hours in some countries. Workers should work for more than twelve hours in some countries which is different in other countries.
Health and safety, anti-discrimination and unfair dismissal laws protects the rights of workers. All business and companies have health and safety laws. These types of laws inform employees about all the health and safety procedures that protect them when they are working. Workers are protected from being discriminated in the workplaces by anti discrimination laws. Workers are not dismissed unfairly or on illegitimate ground by their employers because they are protected by the unfair dismissal laws. You should look for a lawyer to help you sue those who are violating your rights if they are violated within the workplace.
