Employment Laws 2 Employment Laws Family and Medical Leave Act, Age Discrimination Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, and Pregnancy Discrimination Act are a few employment laws that have surpassed the world we live in today. Over the last 10 years, I have observed various situations where elements of employment law have been applied. These situations entail the use of Age Discrimination Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and Pregnancy Discrimination Act. The paper will be covering a little of the history and development of employment laws. Several of the employment laws have demonstrated to be successful in providing employees with equal opportunities in the workplace. The uses of employment laws apply for employers who also use contract laborers; while the use may vary, the fundamental laws are followed. Employment laws are sturdily enforced when the company has to preserve a working connection with unions; because their association eventually affects the staff affiliated with the union. History of Employment Laws Some of the employment laws that have transformed the work setting are; The Age Discrimination Act, this act was put in place in 1967 to avert employers of discriminating by the age of the person. The Age Discrimination Act explicitly forbids companies to decline work or let go people because of age, other circumstances consist of dropping benefits, conditions, or rights of employment (EEOC, 1997) The Americans with Disabilities Act was intended to guarantee that citizens with disabilities have the same opportunities in society, as everyone else. This act was approved in 1990 to avoid discrimination by public and private entities (Florida Office of Americans with Disabilities Act, 2007).

Employment Laws 3 Americans with Disabilities Act looks after capable individual’s who get treated unfairly from a public organization. The Family and Medical Leave Act were intended to provide workers the chance to balance employment and family life. Several people have taken advantage of this benefit in order to take care of a newborn, taking care of personal, or family medical needs. The Pregnancy Discrimination Act is an amendment to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act
