Employment Law Lawyers In Minter City Mississippi

Minter City is an unincorporated community in Leflore County, Mississippi, in the Mississippi Delta region. The former downtown area of Minter City is located on the Tallahatchie River, at the intersection of River Road and Old Hwy 8. State Hwy 8 intersects U.S. 49 in the Minter City area. Originally on land owned by James Minter, the town was named Walnut Place or Walnut Grove. Because there was another Mississippi town named Walnut Grove, the name was changed. Names were put into a hat and the name Minter was drawn. The land that some may consider the old town or downtown Minter City is privately owned now by one family. A small part of the downtown still exists.

What is employment law?

Employment law deals with the relationship between employees and their employer specifying the rights and restrictions applicable to the employee and employer in the workplace. Employment law differs from labor law, which primarily deals with the relationship between employers and labor organizations.

Employment law regulates such issues as employee discipline, benefits, hiring, firing, overtime and breaks, leave, payroll, health and safety in the workplace, non-compete agreements, retaliation, severance, unemployment compensation, pensions, whistleblowing, worker classification as independent contractor or employee, wage garnishment, work authorization for non-U.S. citizens, worker's compensation, and employee handbooks.
