Employee Rights in Northridge: What You Need to Know

Every person in the United States has certain rights working as an employee. The Ham Commission Report established these rights for workers. They include the following:

  • Your Right To Know: You are required to be made aware of the risks associated with the people you work with, equipment, materials, environment, and the job itself.
  • Right To Participate: You have the right to ask questions if you are unsure about the risk on your health or your co-worker’s. You can also report unsafe work environments to your boss.
  • Right To Refuse Unsafe Work: You have the right to refuse to work if you believe you or your coworker will be in danger.

  • Your work was undermined even though you are competent at your job
  • Your manager took a dislike to you and made your life hard, unfairly condemning your work and assigning you degrading tasks
  • You are carelessly excluded from a promotion
  • You are constantly belittled
  • You are bullied and harassed at work
  • Unfair treatment at work usually overlaps with discrimination such as gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, pregnancy and age.
