The U.S. Department of Labor has developed excellent web resources to help employers and employees better understand employment law:
- First Step provides an overview of major employment laws including record keeping, reporting and notice requirements. It also provides details about the information that must be posted within a workplace and downloadable posters to fulfill these requirements.
- E-Law advisors are interactive tools designed to provide easy-to-understand information by simulating an interview with a labor law expert. Pick a topic and the e-law advisor will ask questions and respond based upon your answers.
