Labor & Employment Law Attorneys Serving U.S. Virgin Islands
Employment and labor laws govern all aspects of the relationship between employers and employees. While designed in part to protect the rights of employees, these laws maintain a balance of fairness and equity among employers and employees that is vital to the health of all businesses. They require attorneys to be knowledgeable about such issues as human resource guidelines, wage and hour laws, occupational safety and health laws, workers compensation laws, and equality-based laws such as anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws.
