Frequently Asked Questions

What is labor law in the US?

U.S. labor law covers all facets of the legal relationship between employers, employees, and employee labor unions. Employers' opposition to recognizing employees' rights to organize and bargain collectively with management has resulted in a system of primarily federal laws and regulations that is adversarial in nature.

Why has labor law lost its popularity?

Disfigured by courts, attacked by employers, and rendered inapt by a global and fissured economy, many of labor law’s most ardent proponents have abandoned it altogether. And for good reason: the law that governs collective organization and bargaining among workers has little to offer those it purports to protect.

What are some low and no-cost options for legal representation?

Some low and no-cost options for legal representation include public defenders. Public defenders represent clients as vigorously and competently as private, for-pay attorneys. There is no right to a free attorney in civil matters, but local Legal Aid offices will offer low and no-cost legal representation to those who can’t afford to pay.

What does the fair labor practices Act prohibit?

The act prohibits employers and unions from committing "unfair labor practices" that would violate these rights or certain other specified interests of employers and the general public in various circumstances.
