Know Your Wisconsin Employment Law Rights
Attorney Douglas J. Carroll, Jr., the founder of Carroll Law Firm, SC believes that knowledge is power for employees. “Knowing your employment rights is the only way you can prevent them from being violated and seek redress if they have been violated.” In many situations knowing your rights can allow you to protect yourself before there is a serious adverse employment action such as suspension or discharge. For example the victim of Sexual Harassment needs to know to whom and how to report a co-worker’s or supervisor’s unwelcome conduct. Further, after there has been an adverse employment action knowing your rights can preserve your ability to enforce them. For example, in situations where Discrimination is a potential issue employers will offer a severance agreement at the time of discharge. Signing such an agreement could prevent you from pursuing valid legal claims against your employer. Know your rights before you act.
