They say no work is easy; if it was easy, it wouldn’t be called work. Does this mean you simply have to swallow all the hardships without another word? No. There are some instances that need action so that your company’s wrongful treatment of employees can stop.
If you experience any of the following, it may be time to consult your legal rights:
Delayed and Unpaid Wages
The whole idea behind working is that you get paid for the effort you put in. You have a basic salary as well as benefits and commissions, if applicable. The terms of receiving your payment should also be laid out before you sign your contract, and any changes should be communicated with you before implementation. One delayed payment may not be enough to file a claim, but you need to get employment lawyers involved if the Minnesota company has not been able to pay you for several consecutive cut-offs.
Unfair Contract Termination
There are different reasons for your termination. And you should be given a notice of it. In the event that you are terminated without a justifiable reason, you can sue the company. Make sure you can prove that there is no cause for termination and that you have not broken any of the company’s rules.
Harassment in the Workplace
Many employees silently live through workplace harassment because they do not want to drag it out. The problem is if you don’t speak up about harassment and unfair treatment, you are allowing this behavior to continue in the workplace. It can victimize more people, and the workplace will become unsafe for you and for other victims. Reporting a case of harassment is for your own good, as well as that of your colleagues. If the company is able to address this, it also benefits them.
Reporting the wrongdoings of a company is not just about getting the compensation you deserve. You’re also helping your colleagues have a safe working environment.
