When it comes to work, everyone expects to be treated fairly and enjoy the work they’ve been hired to do. But unfortunately, many Americans are subject to cruel and illegal treatment by their employers.
Whether it’s wrongful termination or sexual harassment, or many other types of mistreatment, employees don’t have to “grin and bear it” through such behavior. There are laws that establish and protect employee rights—and you should be aware of them.
Perhaps you’ve been laid off. LegalShield provider lawyer Michael Dupont talks about what you and other employees need to know if this happens in a CNN Business article, “Getting laid off? Know your rights.”
In this guide, we’ll explain what you need to know about employee rights and how they can help protect you in times of trouble. Here’s what each chapter covers.
