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. Collective labor laws are categorized further to more groups. Trade unions, strikes, pickets, and workplace involvement laws are the two groups of collective laws.
Trade union laws are not found in some countries. Unions are expected to follow some specific procedures before acting on some stuff by the trade union laws. Definition of when the strike is legal or illegal is done by the strike labor laws. During the strike, there is another type of collective labor law that is used called picketing. Picketing labor law helps those who are striking to be heard. 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.
Individual laws are the rights and freedoms that employees should enjoy while they are working. These types of laws include things such as contract of employment, minimum wage, working time, health and safety, anti-discrimination and unfair dismissal from work. Laws that deal with contracts of employment are called the rights and obligations of both the employer and employee. The two parties set them as contract agreements. The employer may state in the contract that he will dismiss an employee for any reason so long as it is legal. No legal actions will be taken against the employer when the worker is dismissed by the employers rightfully.
Labor law also describes the minimum wage or amount a worker will get per hour. Labor laws are different in some countries. The working laws are not the same in every state.
