Construction sites and related manual labor workplaces are hotspots for injuries and mistreatment due to the industry’s dangerous and powerful machinery and large amounts of tradesmen on site. Attention to detail and clear communication are necessary for a safe environment, but when negligence or lacking equipment is present, harm to a person or persons on a construction site can occur. In this situation, it is imperative that the accident victim know their rights and legal options for optimum compensation, medical bill reimbursement, long term suffering aid, financial impact relief and overall justice.
Labor law primarily concerns the rights and responsibilities of unionized employees. Unions come with the power of group negotiation for fair treatment and benefits, but they also have a responsibility to treat their own union members with integrity and to honor freedom of speech and assembly. Employers interact with union members under their own set of rules, in addition to adhering to state laws complying with the federal National Labor Relations Act, New York Labor Law and Occupational Safety Administration (OSHA).
Labor law can also refer to the set of standards for working conditions and wage laws. These laws, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, prohibits child labor, and sets a minimum wage.
