In a time filled with financial uncertainty and an ongoing global financial crisis, job security is of the utmost importance. Large portions of the population are now suffering the effects of unemployment due to job loss. However, for those fortunate enough to have steady work, collapsing industries and the threat of downsizing can be quite stressful. Although nothing in life is ever 100% certain, there are a number of things we can do to minimize our risks of job loss. Now more than ever it is the average employee’s responsibility to become more aware of these best practices.
Laws governing the workplace and employer/employee relationships can seem intimidating to those lacking in legal experience. Additionally, contracts established between employers and employees can often be complicated and highly involved. In order to better understand your rights as an employee, it is often necessary to enlist the help of expert legal counsel. However, there are a number of things you can do on your own to protect your job security and reduce the risk of job loss. Knowing your rights will enable you to avoid unnecessary trouble and to be confident in your workplace. Contrarily, not knowing your rights will always attract people who will take advantage of you.
We will explore these practices in detail at the upcoming free seminar “Employee Terminations: Minimizing Your Risks” presented by Kazembe & Associates. If you are concerned about a potential termination, or simply want to ensure that you are doing everything in your power to establish a rock-solid professional future, join us for this in-depth discussion of workplace rights.
This is part of Kazembe & Associates “In the Know” legal information sessions. A series of free breakfast seminars presented by Kazembe & Associates. The seminars are intended to help you understand your rights and options in a variety of legal situations.
