Understanding Your Rights As An Employee
Most employment situations are considered “at-will.” This means that most jobs are not guaranteed, and you can be fired at any time, and for any reason. However, there are exceptions to this. If you have been fired because of your race, gender, or sexual orientation, that is considered wrongful termination. If you believe this has happened to you, it is important to talk to an attorney right away.
An employment contract is another important part of a job. This is an agreement made between you and your employer that outlines the duties, responsibilities, and benefits of your job. While you are required to perform your job and necessary tasks, the company you work for must also holdup its end of the deal. This means that your employer must give you the benefits promised in your agreement, and cannot fire you for certain reasons prohibited by the agreement.
