Frequently Asked Questions About Employment Law
All employees are entitled to fair pay, benefits, and equal opportunity for promotions, in addition to a safe and comfortable working environment. Both federal and state regulations protect these rights from being violated. In many cases, though, an employer may choose to violate an employee’s rights or deliberately fail to put a stop to inappropriate conduct. This kind of behavior should not be accepted or ignored; in fact, it warrants civil action.
