Ways Your Employer May Be Violating Your Rights

Many workers assume that their employer understands and complies with labor and employment laws on a regular basis. In reality, there are numerous businesses that are violating employee rights every single day. While some companies do this intentionally, others simply make mistakes. Either way, if they are breaking the law, they are engaged in illegal activity and their intentions do not really matter.

Ultimately, it is up to the worker to ensure that his or her rights are not being infringed upon. Here are some common workers’ rights violations to watch out for in your workplace:

  • Misclassification of employees
  • Failure to pay minimum wage
  • Keeping inaccurate records
  • Restricting employee speech
  • Failure to provide a safe work environment
  • Presence of discrimination
  • Sexual harassment from employers or co-workers
  • Termination for illegal reasons
  • Retaliation against those who file claims for unlawful practice
  • Failure to provide benefits stated in the employment contract
