Issues with Employment Can Affect Your Family

Good News Conflict Management – Providing hope and help for those in need.

Most people realize that the loss of their job will affect their entire family. You need your income to provide financially, and when that income is gone, the whole family could fall apart. 

If you were fired because you weren’t doing your job, the blame is on you. However, what if you lost your job for another reason? What if someone discriminated against you, or you were mistreated at work?

According to some federal employment attorneys who talked with GNCM, there are federal laws in place that are meant to protect workers. You do have recourse when you’ve been wronged at your workplace. You have the right to file a claim against those who’ve wronged you.

Types of Employment Issues

Many things can happen at work or because of your job, but you aren’t eligible to sue for all those things. However, you can sue if your rights were violated at work. For instance, if you were passed over for a promotion because of your race, gender, or sexual orientation, you can file a discrimination claim.

There are also occasions where workers are fired because they blow the whistle on shady or illegal practices going on at their workplaces.

Perhaps you haven’t been paid for overtime wages, or maybe you left your job, but you have unpaid wages that your employer refuses to resolve.

Important note: the labor laws in our country are designed to protect workers from unfair employment practices. If you believe your employer is engaging in unfair employment practices, you might be able to file a claim to change that situation.

Why Fighting Back Helps Your Family

When you are mistreated by an employer, your situation affects your family as well. They will suffer if you have unpaid wages, and they may have to pick up the slack. It’s important that you fight back against unfair labor practices, because you can make the world better for other workers through a successful claim or lawsuit.
