LABOR & EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS AND INFORMATION
Employment law deals with the right and obligations between an employee and an employer, or in many cases, a former employee or a job applicant. Some of the most common issues involved in labor and employment law include:
- Wrongful termination
- Employment discrimination
- Wages and overtime pay
- Workplace safety
- Sexual harassment
- Disability and workers’ compensation
- Non-compete clauses
- Breach of contract
All employees in America have certain rights and it is not uncommon for those rights to be violated by employers. The law protects even those who simply applying for a job. A job applicant also has certain rights even prior to being hired as an employee including freedom from discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, or religion during the hiring process. For example, an employer is not allowed to ask an individual applying for a job certain family-related questions during the hiring process.
The law also covers the rights of employees concerning privacy in the workplace. Some of the most common questions asked regarding privacy in the workplace include:
Can my employer listen to my phone calls while I’m at work? Can my employer obtain records of my phone calls? Is my employer allowed to monitor the activity on my computer? Is my employer allowed to search my desk? Is my employer allowed to monitor my emails?
In most cases the answer is yes. However there are circumstances where the employer can violate your rights. For example, it is legal for employers to monitor business related phone calls to and from their own premises (to evaluate the quality of customer service in most cases). However, a federal law, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), which originally served to limit wiretapping, puts some major limitations on that right. Under the Act, if a call is being monitored for business purposes and a personal call comes in, an employer must hang up as soon as it’s apparent that the call is personal. The same law may limit your employer’s right to monitor e-mail activity. If you’re unsure whether or not you have a case, feel free to call us for a free consultation.
Additional employee rights include:
- Right to be free from discrimination and harassment
- Right to a safe workplace free of dangerous conditions, toxic substances, and other potential safety hazards
- Right to be free from retaliation for filing a claim or complaint against an employer (aka “whistleblower” rights)
- Right to fair wages for work performed
