Being aware of your employee rights

Whether it is your first job or not, every time individuals in New York or elsewhere are hired, they are afforded certain rights in the workplace. These rights not only help create a safe work environment but also invoke specific rights for each individual employee. If these rights are not afforded or protected in the work environment, an employee might have legal recourses.

What can workplace discrimination look like?

While employees in New York are supposed to feel safe and comfortable in their work environment, this unfortunately is not always the case. Employees are afforded certain rights, but sometimes these rights could be violated. One such occurrence in a hostile workplace is employment discrimination.

The employer-employee relationship can sometimes be strained by events occurring in the workplace. While employees in New York understand that employment at-will can be terminated at any time for any reasons, there is also the understanding that an employee cannot be fired for unlawful reasons. Nonetheless, employees and employers enter murky waters when accusations of discrimination occur and an employee must be let go because of it.

Understanding if you have a wrongful termination action

Obtaining and maintaining a job is important for New York residents. It is not only a source of income, but for many people a job is an achievement and a purpose in life. To be fired or let go from a job can be a life-altering and devastating event. But, what if an employee was not fired properly? What if a worker was terminated for grounds that are not legal? Such a situation would give rise to a wrongful termination action.

The Silicon Valley company has enjoyed incredible growth, emphasizing "meritocracy" -- getting the best results at any cost. As of right now, Uber is worth nearly $70 billion. However, some workers at Uber claim the culture at the workplace is unrestrained and sometimes hostile.
