Welcome to FindLaw's Iowa Employment Law section, with user-friendly explanations of laws regulating the relationship between employer and employee. More specifically, employment laws set standards for workplace safety, wage policies, prohibitions on discrimination, and other matters. Federal laws protecting employees' rights are applicable to all states and serve as the basis, but many states offer additional worker protections. Iowa, like many other states, has a so-called "right to work" law that prohibits mandatory payment of union dues, as well as whistleblower protections for public employees. Additional laws establish legal holidays, the minimum wage, and other conditions of employment.
