The Littler State Employer Library

The State Employer Library is designed to help employers identify and apply various state employment law requirements. Each title in the library follows the employment cycle – tracking requirements from pre-hire, time of hire, during employment, and through to the end of employment. Because employers are subject to both federal and state employment laws, each section provides a brief overview of federal law and then summarizes applicable state law.

The State Library consists of separate titles for each state and the District of Columbia.

The Littler International Guide

The Littler International Guide provides a comprehensive, comparative analysis of international employment and labor laws for corporate counsel, cross-border legal practitioners, and HR professionals. Written by selected attorneys and scholars from around the globe and edited by the attorneys of Littler's International Practice Group, the Guide is organized in a question-and-answer format and covers more than 45 countries/territories.
