First let’s understand the basics of employment law. The main purpose of employment law is to regulate and protect relationships between the government, employers and employees. This covers all industries and all sectors. It specifically deals with the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees outlining key issues such as health and safety, minimum wage, equal pay and discrimination.
