Being treated properly at work can be something we take for granted. Employment law for employees means you don’t have to put up with an employer treating you badly. It is possible to take legal action against an employer if you feel this has been the case.
It’s important to recognise that you shouldn’t suffer in silence.
If there has been an incident, you should document as much about it as you can. If it is an ongoing issue, write them all down so you can show you have a legitimate complaint. Try to resolve the issue internally through the outlined steps of that organization. For example it could be an informal chat with a manager or following a specific procedure.
An informal complaint to your employer may be all it takes to correct the issue. If that isn’t the case, you may need to file a formal complaint and then take legal action.
Employment lawyers specializing in legal action against employers can assist and guide you through the process. You may feel intimidated to go against your employer. They can’t fire you or use intimidation tactics.
You have a right to be treated fairly at your job. Speak up when that doesn’t happen for your well-being. If the issue includes other employees ask them to be part of the complaint process too.
They can help you with filing your complaint as well as asking for the resolution you want. The employer can agree to that resolution or they may try to negotiate something else. You can decide along with the help of your legal counsel to accept what is on the table or continue to fight for what you originally asked for to resolve the complaint.
Legal action can take place while you are still employed or after. You may feel you were wrongfully fired due to discrimination or another issue. With the help of professionals who know the laws and offer compassionate help, you can get a resolution you are happy with!
