Whether federal and/or state standards, there is a difference in how and why rules would apply to certain labor conditions. For example, there are specific laws that deal with child labor issues. When employing a child, both federal and state laws would apply to ensure all aspects of employment terms are addressed. The issue of whether US labor laws are in terms of employees and organizations, balanced or imbalanced would be addressed based on the circumstance. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was established to provide specific rules that affect full and part-time workers working in the private sector, federal, state, and local governments. Rules may change based on the age of the minor worker and what type of work would be performed.Most credible employers follow all US labor laws and have mechanisms in place that ensure laws are followed. Human resources leaders play an essential role in managing employment relationships in most organizations and ensure rules are followed as it relates to the balance of US labor laws, how they apply to employees, and impact organizations. One example of how our human resources department confirms our new hires are authorized to work is using a Pre-Check system that dials into the Department of Homeland Security and verifies if our new hires are authorized to work in the United States.
