Labor Policy News

Labor policy is something that constantly changes - or evolves - alongside society. The Wiser daily labor policy news email is designed to keep you informed of developments in the current law, as well as in the discussions, debates and analysis of policy shifts and changes. Labor policy informs the laws that govern the relationship between employers and employees. It takes two forms: collectively (primarily through unions) and individually. Labor policy is decided at both federal and state level and covers things like discrimination, contracts of employment, wages, pensions, health and safety, and issues regarding employees' families. One area of labor policy that is the subject debate and ongoing change is that of discrimination. With this and all the other changes that regularly take place, employer responsibilities alter. Whatever your interest in labor policy news you will get all of the information you need from Wiser's specially tailored email digest. It is free, comprehensive and easy to use, so register today.
