Understanding Federal vs. State Employment Laws in California

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 are here to help! Give us a call today to go over your case and schedule a consultation!
