Recruit management candidates, hire and fire staff, and manage personnel with these template Employment Contracts and Forms for U.S. businesses.

The United States Department of Labor has published an employment guide on its website with information for employers on wages and benefits, occupational health and safety, and non-discriminatory hiring practices.

Employment standards are governed by a number of federal statutes, including the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act. At the State level, there are 23 states which have right-to-work laws which require unionized workplaces to allow employees to work, whether or not they are members of the union. A National Right to Work Act is awaiting congressional approval (as of Sept 2012). This Act would eliminate compulsory union membership in every State. Each worker would be free to choose or not choose union representation.
