Know Your Rights as an Employee
Your employment in the workplace comes with rights and responsibilities. As a working professional you should have an understanding of how the laws in your workplace affect you as an employee. Being aware of your rights and responsibilities as an employee can make the difference between keeping your job or being a victim of unfair termination of employment.
Wrongful Dismissal / Termination Without Cause
