Labor and Employment Law in North Carolina
Greensboro attorneys committed to enforcement of the law
Employment and labor laws govern all aspects of the relationships between employers and employees. Their goal should be to protect the rights of employees. These laws maintain a balance of fairness and equity between employers and employees that is vital to the health of our economy. They require attorneys to be knowledgeable about such issues as human resource guidelines, wage and hour statutes, occupational safety and health, workers compensation, and anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws.
