Know Your Rights under Employment Law

Often employees do not understand that they have options available if they believe they have been the victim of discrimination. Because of fear, an employee may accept illegal and harassing behavior. It is important to understand your rights in the workplace to protect yourself and your family. For example, plain and simple it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against you and it is illegal for an employer to allow a hostile work environment to exist.
