Employment law, also known as labour law, is a collection of laws, rulings and precedents that collectively address the rights and restrictions on working people and their organisations. Employment law mediates the way in which employers, employees and trade unions interact.
Labour laws may be divided into two broad categories, collective labour law and individual labour law. Collective labour law defines how employees, employers and unions relate. Individual labour law is more concerned with the rights at work of employees.
Labour law was initiated by workers who demanded better conditions and rights, and employers who demanded to restrict worker power and to keep labour costs as low as possible. Originally, labour law was a reflection of struggles between two aspects of society.
