    Labor Law 101

     

    Introduction

    One of the most cited pronouncements in the HR Lexicon is, “People are the greatest asset.” We see this banner unfurled in most company websites or corporate profiles. Strangely enough, one major headache of most businesses is in the area of dealing with people – in particular, labor issues. Often, it stems from a lack of knowledge of the best practices in dealing with labor problems. If individually and collectively people contribute to the success or downfall of companies, it becomes imperative for all HR and line managers and supervisors to become familiar with the rudiments and updates of Labor Law. Needless to say, creating, maintaining, or enhancing positive employer-employee relations is immensely important in order to achieve better collaboration in the workplace, and ultimately, better productivity.

Strangely enough, one major headache of most businesses is in the area of dealing with people – in particular, labor issues. Often, it stems from a lack of knowledge of the best practices in dealing with labor problems. If individually and collectively people contribute to the success or downfall of companies, it becomes imperative for all HR and line managers and supervisors to become familiar with the rudiments and updates of Labor Law. Needless to say, creating, maintaining, or enhancing positive employer-employee relations is immensely important in order to achieve better collaboration in the workplace, and ultimately, better productivity.
