Work Law

Work law focuses on the relationship between workers and employers. Which laws apply and how often depends on who the employer is and what type of job the worker does. These pages won’t answer every question you have about work law, but they offer general information, links to laws, and recommendations for other places to look. 

Much of the information in this section applies to workers who are considered employees, rather than independent contractors. For more information on whether a person is an employee or independent contractor, visit the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage & Hour Division website
