In the United States there are a number of Federal laws that protect an individual who is employed with any public company or organization. The various employee laws in the United States uphold equal opportunity employment without discrimination towards religion, race, sex, age, or disability.
In addition, employee laws also ensure basic human rights that uphold the privileges associated with the United States Constitution. Furthermore, employee laws also place a limit on working hours, as well as a floor on wages. All of these employee laws are meant to protect an employee from abusive actions from their companies or organizations.
Throughout America’s history the Federal Government, through Congress, has passed many Acts and various forms of legislation to enforce such employee laws and ensure the protection of rights to those who work for those employed in the United States.
