HR and Employment Law Resources for Alabama

Alabama state image

Alabama is known to be an employer-friendly state. For the most part, any laws that differ from federal law are pro-business, with very few employee-rights such as additional protected classes expanding on federal law. However, there are exceptions to this. For example, Alabama’s restriction on the hours a minor may work and various leave laws might be considered pro-employee.

This page is a round-up of the state and municipal laws in Alabama.
