Labor laws are something that has to be followed by all the companies in order to escape from unwanted legal problems. Usually, these labor laws will be laid in order to safeguard the rights of employees as well as the company. The main factors that will be protected with the help of these federal laws are religion, national origin, race, and age. An important factor that has to be noted while working is the working hours and the wage provided for it. There are many companies, that make the workers strive hard and provide very less wages and in order to avoid this situation the minimum wages law was enacted. This law ensures if an employee works overtime, then extra cost is provided and no such right is denied for the employee.
Next issue that is noted and settled by law is the seasonal employment and migration environment. The people who work in other places away from their homeland find it very difficult to manage, as they will not be treated equally when compared to the residents of the place. Later, laws were enacted to solve this problem. An important labor act that is worth a mention is the prevention of child labor act. There are acts that deal with the safety of the workers at their workplace and also the health of the workers should not be affected due to the unhealthy environment in the workplace. Even there are laws that ensure a secure life for the employees even after their retirement from the company.
