Ensuring that U.S. labor laws are enforced

Employees in the United States are among the most privileged and protected of all employees around the world. This wasn't, however, always the case. Today, U.S. labor laws like the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Equal Pay Act of 1963 help protect employees from suffering acts of harassment and discrimination in the workplace. Unfortunately, acts of harassment, wage theft and discrimination still occur with significant frequency in many U.S. industries and workplaces.
