Employment law history

Understanding how our employment laws came to be

In litigation, history and precedent can be the deciding factors that sway a decision one way or another. To help clients and the public understand how we got to the complex web of legislation that employers face today, here are some pages from the history books that shed some light on how it all came to be.

These pages cover:

The History of Minimum Wage Laws: How they got started, where they stand today.

Federal Anti-Discrimination Law: The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and how it relates to the current economic climate for employers.

At Will Employment: How what was once a simple principle of law has been made complicated.

The California Fair Employment and Housing Act: How World War II and its aftermath created the climate which gave birth to this act and similar legal protections against workplace discrimination.
