Labor & Employment

The U.S. Chamber promotes workplace policies that enhance economic growth and job creation.  To that end, the Litigation Center regularly challenges aggressive expansion of federal statutes like Title VII, the ADEA, and the ADA as well as attempts by the Department of Labor and plaintiffs’ bar to expand liability under the FLSA.  The Litigation Center also pushes back against overreach by the NLRB and other federal agencies to protect the rights of workers and employers, including government contractors.  And in state courts, the Litigation Center actively defends flexible employment models that offer opportunities for independent workers and small businesses.
