A set of legal rules called labor laws are the ones that describe that rights and restrictions of all workers. Two groups are used to classify the labor laws. Labor laws have two groups and they are collective and individual. Collective laws are those labor laws that regulate the relationship between employer, employees, and associations. There are other groups of collective labor laws also. Collective laws are divided into other groups which are strikes, pickets, trade unions, and workplace involvement.
Some states do not have trade union labor laws. Unions are expected to follow some specific procedures before acting on some stuff by the trade union laws. Strike laws define when the strike is legal and when the strike isn’t legal. Picketing is another type of collective labor law that is used during the strikes. It makes those who are striking to be known. You will have to follow other legal guidelines that are found within picketing laws. If something occurs in the company workplace involvement law will define the ideas that employers will use to consult their workers.
Individual laws are the rights and freedoms that employees should enjoy while they are working. Things such as contract of employment, minimum wage, working time, health and safety, anti-discrimination and unfair dismissal from job are included in individual laws. Laws that deal with contracts of employment are called the rights and obligations of both the employer and employee. They are set out a contract agreement by the two parties. Such contracts will state that an employer might dismiss an employee because of several legitimate reasons. When an employer discharges an employee because of specific legal reasons, legal actions will not be taken against him.
Labor law also describes the minimum wage or amount a worker will get per hour. Labor laws are different in some countries. Countries also, have different working time laws. The time that workers will work every day in a company is described by the working time laws. Workers are allowed to work for twelve hours in some countries. Other countries state that workers should work for more than twelve hours which makes them be different.
Laws such as health and safety, anti-discrimination and unfair dismissal laws are set to defend the rights of employees. Healthy and safety laws are available in all business and companies.

Workers are protected from being discriminated in the workplaces by anti discrimination laws. Employers are prevented from dismissing workers on illegitimate grounds by unfair dismissal laws.
