Employees in the United States are covered by state and federal employment laws. Various aspects of employment may fall under state employment laws, federal employment laws or a combination of both. Typically state and federal laws are similar, but occasionally they may conflict with each other. In situations where there is a conflict, individuals are usually covered by the laws that provide the most rights and protections.
The employer's size also determines what state and federal laws apply to a particular employment situation. For example, most federal civil rights laws do not apply to companies with less than fifteen employees.
Additionally, interpretation of employment laws can vary from state to state and even between various local jurisdictions within a state. You should always consult a qualified licensed attorney to determine which laws apply to your individual situation.
