The law generally defines an employer as any person acting in the interest of an employer, directly or indirectly. It does not include a labor organization or any of its officers or agents unless they are acting as an employer.
On the other hand, an employee is likewise broadly defined as any person in the employ of another. The definition includes any individual whose work has ceased as a result of or in connection with any current labor dispute or because of any unfair labor practice if he has not obtained any other substantially equivalent and regular employment. It is not limited to employees of a particular employer, except if so explicitly stated by law.
