In North Carolina, the Labor Law Board is responsible for providing several key things to both the employees and the businesses within the state. From an employee standpoint, there are several key benefits to understanding what this department can do for you. If you are unemployed, this is the place to come for help with unemployment needs. The state offers a good amount of help in this field. You will find help in getting unemployment insurance, help with training and education in order to gain the necessary skills for employment as well as providing help in finding that right job as well.
From the business standpoint, the North Carolina Labor Law Board is really the department watching what is happening within your business. Such things as occupational safety and child labor laws are things that they set in place and generally help to enforce. They help to set and enforce the minimum wage as well. Currently, this is set at $5.15 per hour but is something that the board is considering changing. Nevertheless, step out of line and this is the board that will want to insure you are getting back in line. Their goal is to insure that those that work in the state of North Carolina are given fair and safe places to work.
In any case, the North Carolina Labor Law Board provides a great deal of help in regards to monitoring how the economy is doing as well. Because their decisions are based on how well the economy is doing, they regularly put out information about how well the state is doing. Such things as the unemployment rate of the state, the number of new jobs created and even the details of which jobs are in demand are all pieces of information provided to this governing board as well as much, much more.
