Common Employment Issues

A job is an essential part of most people’s lives. People face many difficult issues at work.  It is very important to know what your rights are and what you can do if you face a legal issue at work. Here are some examples of common employment questions we receive on the Hotline:

  • I was dismissed from work and want to know my rights
  • I was fired. Am I entitled to severance?
  • My employer made changes to my job that I’m unhappy with
  • My employer says that I’m an independent contractor, but I disagree
  • I am being investigated or disciplined at work
  • I’m facing discrimination at work
  • My employer is withholding my pay
  • I’m concerned about the safety of my workplace
