Your employer may be liable if you are harassed at work

If the environment you work in is unfriendly, there is a good chance that your performance will suffer. In some ways, however, this may be the least of your worries. Sexual harassment can be deeply distressing and very difficult to deal with. However, if you are subjected to harassment in the workplace, it is important to stand up for your rights and challenge those responsible.

California-based company accused of discrimination

Being treated unfairly in your place of work is never a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, it is something that many workers face. Often the mistreatment arises in the form of discrimination. Whether it is discrimination over age, gender, race, sexuality or otherwise, it is not something that anyone should have to tolerate. However, for some people the discrimination begins even before they find employment.

What are your rights as an employee?

Knowing what sort of treatment you should be able to expect from your employer enables you to challenge them if you feel they have acted unjustly. Every employee has basic work rights and these should be upheld by their employer and their colleagues. The exact rules vary from one state to the next, but some rights are accepted pretty much throughout the United States.

Thousands of California workers misclassified as contractors

It can be difficult enough to get by without suffering a loss of wages. Unfortunately, many workers go unpaid, or are not paid enough for their jobs. Others are expected to work overtime for which they then may not be compensated. Sometimes, problems with wages or working hours can be the result of a simple misunderstanding or miscommunication, so it is important to know your rights.
