dc.description.abstract Many countries have recently suffered from an increase in the rate of unemployment. This has been the result of several factors, including the competition from foreign workers and the lack of protection of national labor. USA and Lebanon have both accepted Syrian refugees since the beginning of the Syrian conflict. However, the latter had a severe impact on the Lebanese economy compared to that of US. This is because around 1.5 million Syrian refugees have entered Lebanon compared to only few thousands moved to the US, with the difference in the economic abilities between both host countries. This thesis provides a comparative study between the basic provisions of the US and Lebanese Labor Laws. It focuses on foreign employment with suggestions to curb the impact of the Syrian conflict on the Lebanese labor market. Although USA and Lebanon have special rules related to the acceptance and employment of foreigners, Lebanon failed to protect its national labor due to the lack of effective enforcement mechanisms. en_US
