Protecting the Rights of Employees in the San Fernando Valley

The federal government has enacted many laws regarding various aspects of employment. Many of these laws cover all employees who work at companies employing a specific number of people, while others apply to everyone (think: anti-discrimination laws). Fully understanding all of your employee rights can be overwhelming due to the number of laws that pertain to the workplace.

Do Federal Labor Laws Override State Laws?

Were you terminated from your position against federal labor laws but not against your state’s laws?

Usually, state laws do not go against federal labor laws. However, if they do, Article 6, Paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution states that the federal laws of the U.S. are the absolute law and judges/lawyers in every state are bound by them regardless of their conflicting state laws.

If you believe that your state law goes against the federal labor laws, do not hesitate to reach out to an attorney. The attorneys at K2 Employment Law Group are here to help! Give us a call today to go over your case and schedule a consultation!
