What Are My Basic Rights As An Employee?
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.
If you believe you were denied these rights in your place of work by your employer, do not hesitate to contact K2 Employment Law. We are on your side and here to help you achieve justice.

What to Expect from the Employment Complaint Process
