Affordable Legal Support From Our Team of Employment Lawyers

A small business plan from LegalShield gives you all the legal services you need to deal with disgruntled employees at a price that any small business can afford.

The Difference Between Employment Law and Labour Law

Labour laws regulate the relationship between employers and labor unions, such as the AFL-CIO. Labour laws cover topics like the right to unionize and the negotiation and enforcement of collective bargaining agreements.  

Employment laws regulate the relationship between an employer and individual employees and deal with issues like employment discrimination, harassment and complaints about compensation for work that was delivered. 

Regardless of which laws apply to your situation, a small business plan from Legal Shield includes unlimited phone consultation with an experienced employment litigator to help you understand your rights, determine the next steps and protect your business. 

Join legalShield now and be on the phone with an employment lawyer in 4 hours or less after initial contact.
