Know your rights as an employee

Every employee in Missouri has certain rights that his or her employer and colleagues are obliged to respect. Sadly, this does not always happen and countless workers suffer unfair treatment and a hostile work environment every day in their place of employment. This situation is unacceptable yet it regularly is allowed to continue simply because the victims of this mistreatment are unaware of their rights or fear retaliation if they speak up about the problem.

Knowing your rights is an important part of getting the most out of your job. It is not always easy to stay positive at work, especially when your days are being made more stressful by hostility and unfairness. However, if your rights are being breached, you may be able to claim compensation. Furthermore, a successful complaint could help to remedy your situation.

You may worry that making such a complaint could cost you your job. However, it is illegal for your employer to dismiss you on such grounds. As this article on employee rights explains, you are also entitled to fair wages as well as freedom from harassment and discrimination. Of course, your rights extend far beyond this, so it is helpful to investigate the extent of your employer's obligations if you are considering making a claim.

This can seem like a lot to take in, but you do not need to face your employer alone. An attorney may not only be able to advise you about your options, but may also be able to assist you with your claim. With the right support, you may be able to secure compensation for your mistreatment and improve your work environment for the future.
