In the current economic climate, earning money and finding employment is a challenge. To land a good job, an individual must invest time and effort in studying. With so much dependence on their job for basic necessities, getting fired can be a life-changing experience. It is therefore important to be aware of employment law to protect oneself from unjust treatment by employers.
Having knowledge of employment law can give employees a shield against employers who fail to provide the right benefits. Employees can claim their rights to various benefits like health insurance, vacation leave, medical leave, and bonuses. This awareness may motivate them to work harder and longer.
Strict employers who deny sick leave can affect a worker’s productivity. Employees who have knowledge of employment law can claim medical leave without any fear of repercussions. In addition, shouting at employees in front of colleagues is unacceptable and degrading. Individuals should be aware of their rights and how to warn their employers and fight for their rights if necessary.
On the other hand, some employees may abuse their rights. Employers should be aware of employee rights and not allow any abuse or advantage-taking.
