Your Employee Rights

Knowing or worse yet not knowing your basic employee rights is crucial to the success, failure and longevity of any career in the workplace.

Hello I'm Yancey, and as an employee, I designed this site to raise awareness, educate and share some of my genuine job experiences with fellow and potential employees.

Since this site is designed with the employee in mind, it is written to be easily understood in plain English. After weeks or months of searching for and reviewing job descriptions online or in the local newspaper, you find the "perfect" job.

It has everything you want and you can hardly wait for the interview. Now you should patiently ask yourself...

  • Have I finished my investigation of this job?
  • Is it truly a good fit for me?
  • Do I know what to look for?
  • Do I even know what questions to ask?

You get the job only to find out days, weeks or months later the workplace is a hotbed of workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, unfair employee performance reviews, workplace bullying and more aimed right at YOU! Now you are in the middle of it and don't have a clue on how to navigate the process of protecting your basic employment rights!

Accepting a position with a company before taking the time to understand where you stand can be disastrous. What is the majority of employers best kept secret? YOUR BASIC RIGHTS AS AN EMPLOYEE! Educating yourself before, during and after an employment experience will be THE wisest career decision you will ever make.

The employer may own the job don't let the employer own you! Years ago after making many mistakes in the workplace it became obvious the need to find out what protections we employees have involving issues like...

  • constructive discharge (ugh, sounds like a nasty medical condition)
  • ADA
  • FMLA
  • FLSA (flsa? sounds like some type of salsa)
  • Workers Compensation (a personal injury lawyers dream!)

These are but a few of the areas that are of paramount importance to anyone who for a paycheck runs the eight-hour race to someone else's pace. In the how to of learning my job rights, I have amassed a wealth of on the job documentation and experience gained through trail, tribulation and application in learning to...

  • understand job descriptions
  • navigate job interviews (blues)
  • gracefully get through the first day (dismay on display)
  • handle the cost of dealing with the boss
  • deal with problem co-workers (the lurkers!)
  • recognize the dark side of Human Resource (the force!)

A lot of the information concerning employment rights whether on or off line is stacked in favor of protecting management or the employer's interests. Are the employees even aware they need to be aware of their workplace rights?
