Labor and employment law deals with matters involving employer/employee relationships. Labor and employment attorneys advise businesses on how to comply with employment laws and regulations, assist employees whose rights have been violated, and manage disputes between employees and their employers.

Maybe you're an employee who believes that your employer has treated you wrongly, or you own a business and need advice on how to manage your employees within the bounds of the law. If so, it's best to learn as much as possible about the law and your rights in this area. So, we've compiled a list of the most influential voices who are talking about it on Twitter.

This list is based on Twitter data culled according to content, follower/following ratios, frequency of tweets, blog popularity, the opinions of other labor/employment law experts and influencers, as well as our own subjective judgment.

Note that some influential voices are not included, either because they don't have active Twitter accounts, or because they only tweet about labor and employment law sporadically. Here, our goal is to provide the best possible stream of labor and employment law news and insight.
