Its about


and Me

My it’s about you can learn basic employee rights page is designed to give everyone who works for someone else details on who, what, when, where and why about this website.

Who? That would be me Yancey Thomas Jr. and I’m the publisher of You Can Learn Basic Employee Rights! I’ve worked for someone else most of the 31 years of my career as a computer professional. However, My wife and I own several small businesses as well. I am a Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 trained mediator/neutral for general civil/commercial/employment disputes.

I am on the national panel of certified Employment Law mediators through the Alliance for Education in Dispute Resolution and Cornell University. Also, I am an accomplished and certified mediator/neutral through the American Association of Christian Counselors for alternative dispute resolution of all domestic, civil, business and employment conflicts. I'm presently self employed as an internet business building consultant. I'm also a certified fitness professional of 20 years.

What? Since this website is about you can learn basic employee rights I am one employee sharing fundamental information concerning our rights in the workplace in as simple and everyday language as possible. I’m sharing many of my real world employment experiences and how learning my employee rights in the workplace has empowered me. My goal is to show career seekers and employees how they can be empowered.

about you can learn basic employee rights

When? Ten years ago GOD ALMIGHTY gave me the wisdom to educate myself about my basic employee rights about nine months before I was terminated from my employment. I applied the knowledge gained and was reinstated by a unanimous vote of the appeals board. Oh by the way, I did have an attorney to guide me through the appeal process. I highly recommend anyone who values their employment not being unjustly taken away always consult with a competent employment law attorney.

Where? My wife and I reside in southeast Tennessee and we both are employed. However, we are always looking for legitimate self employment opportunities. Let’s face it, working for someone else allows them to dictate what your time is worth. The one irreplaceable asset any of us have is time. Once it’s used we can’t get it back. That makes it even more important to learn your basic employee rights!

Why? I have witnessed and been the victim of a lot of injustice in the workplace over the years. In that time I figured out that the overwhelming majority of employers I worked for assumed I wasn’t aware of my employee rights. In fact most of them who had an attitude of exploitation and not appreciation counted on that ignorance. Many friends and strangers I know of have and are going through similar situations such as discrimination, harassment, demotion and termination.

There are many employers who do appreciate their most important asset, their employees! Unfortunately a lot of companies view employees as commodities to be used! My passion is my compassion for helping my fellow employees learn as I learned. I am a trained mediator in general civil, business and employment issues, but I am not a lawyer or trained legal professional. Please review my specific disclaimer. I’m continuing to learn more about my basic employee rights and my website is intended to help you learn those rights as well.
