Safeguarding Your Rights In The Workplace

Terrence Bouvier Robinson

Posts tagged "blog"

Are you employed? If so, you have rights

Your rights as an employee go beyond getting a paycheck every two weeks. In fact, your Houston employer might have many obligations to you that you are unaware of. For example, if you work for an accounting firm, your employer cannot force you to work off the clock in order to keep the firm's effective billing rate as high as possible even if other employees agree to perform non-paid work.

Religious discrimination and harassment require swift action

Many different forms of discrimination can occur in the workplace. One that isn't often discussed is religious discrimination. This type of discrimination isn't always easy to spot, so employees must pay close attention to what is being said and done in the workplace.

Signs that might point to age discrimination

As the majority of the population is getting older, age discrimination is becoming much more prevalent in the workplace. You may have recently seen management force one of your colleagues into retirement, or maybe you heard a story about another friend in the Houston area that did not get a job because he was not a good fit with the culture of the company. Unfortunately, there are several ways that employers can hide age discrimination in the workplace.

What you should know about wrongful termination

Imagine that you filed a safety complaint about an incident at work. A few days later you started to experience hostility from your supervisor. A few days after that, your boss called you into the office and handed you a pink slip. Your employer had just fired you from the job you had worked for the last 10 years. Since Texas is a work-at-will state, your boss could have let you go for any number of reasons. However, if you lost your job due to filing the safety complaint, you might be able to take legal action.
