What is Employment Law?
Employment law is a broad area of practice that includes the rights, obligations, and responsibilities within the employer-employee relationship.
Most employment lawyers specialize in representing either the employer side or the employee side. One factor that sets The Zoldan Law Group apart from many other employment law firms is that our clients actually include both employers and employees.
All workplace-related legal issues are under the umbrella of employment law, from hiring to harassment to workplace safety to wrongful termination. Any time a wronged employee brings a civil claim against an at-fault party, or an employer works to proactively stay compliant with the laws, employment law is at work. It often takes a lawyer’s assistance to succeed with these types of cases.
At The Zoldan Law Group, our Phoenix employment attorneys can help you if a government agency such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission cannot resolve your case. We also specialize in professional license defense work, particularly for nurses.
Arizona Employment Laws
In addition to the federal employment laws, the State of Arizona has some of its own employment laws that are important for both employers and employees to understand.
- “At Will” Employment: Arizona is an “at-will” employment state, meaning that employees can quit or be terminated at any time, with or without cause.
- Right-to-Work: Arizona is a Right-to-Work state, which means that an employee cannot be forced to join a union.
- Minimum Wage: As of January 1, 2021, Arizona’s minimum wage is $12.15, which is higher than the federal minimum wage.
- Paid Sick Leave: All employers are required to provide all employees with paid sick leave (1 hour for every 30 hours worked, for a maximum of 40 hours/year for employers with 15+ employees and 24 hours/year for employers with 1-15 employees).
- Vacation leave, overtime, severance pay, and meals/breaks are not covered by Arizona’s labor laws. For these matters, Arizona defaults to federal law when applicable.
