Government Laws and Regulations
Many laws apply specifically to workplaces. These may be passed at the federal, state or local level, and some of them result in rather lengthy, detailed regulations. Some—such as wage and hour laws, health and safety statutes, and laws against discrimination—apply to both unionized and non-unionized workplaces. Others come into play only in workplaces where the employees are organizing into a union or already have unionized.
