Unfair treatment means that an employer fails to provide a work environment
If you are an employee, you have the right to sue your employer if he fails to provide decent treatment to you. If you are not an employee but deal with the company’s behalf as an independent contractor, you can sue your employer for unfair treatment at the workplace. There are two categories of treatment: reasonable and unfair treatment. Reasonable treatment means that an employer provides a work environment that is amenable to all kinds of exercise, accommodation and choice. Unfair treatment means that an employer fails to provide a work environment that is amenable to all kinds of exercise, accommodation and choice.
Right to be heard and spoken lawfullyIf you have the right to be heard and speak freely, employers should respect it. It is important for employees to be aware of their rights. For instance, when the employer observes employees speaking out of turn, it could be considered harassment. In such cases, the employer must stop the undesirable employee’s language and conduct. Similarly, there are certain circumstances when an employee’s right to be heard may be violating such as: when employees speak about their problems in a meeting or during breaks; when they are not allowed to express their opinions during discussions; when they are subjected to physical harassment such as slapping, touching or punching; and when they are not given proper warning before being terminated.
Right to privacy
The right to privacy is one of the most important employee rights. Some people feel that an employer has the right to listen to, read and view private employee information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and prescription drugs. This can result in many illegal activities, such as identity theft and drug abuse. Employees should protect their private information by either having a secure home computer or leaving it in plain sight at the work location. In addition, employees must be informed about the federal and state laws regarding privacy. In some states, employees may be required to give consent before releasing their personal information.
Right to confidentialityThe most basic right of privacy is the right to confidentiality. Employees should never discuss what they know with other coworkers without first asking permission. Employers have a reasonable expectation that employees will protect their valuable business information and will notify them promptly if they become aware of a problem. For instance, if an employee knows that his or her boss is planning to fire him, it is reasonable for the employee to notify the employer that he or she will be terminated if the boss does not plan to fire him.
Right to freedom of speech
It is also a human right, but often one that is not recognized very much in today’s workplace. Many employees feel that they are not being compensated for their speech, especially in a non-traditional workplace such as a lunchroom or coffee shop. However, the law protects employees from being fired for expressing themselves, even if the expression is negative. For example, an employee could file a claim with the NLRA if, while working in a customer service job, he voiced his opposition to a certain company policy or the owner of the store asked him to go on a religious or other free speech watch.
Rights to equal employment Opportunity Another important right of employees is the right to equal employment opportunity. It is the employers’ responsibility to make sure that employees are treated fairly. This includes having an equal opportunity to choose the jobs that they want. It also means making sure that employees are not discriminated against based on age, race, gender, religion, or other traits that may affect them negatively. If you have been discriminated against or if you feel that your performance at work has been affected by these traits, you may have a case.
