Your rights at the workplace (the USA)

Recommended Posts

Solipsi Rai

Anyone employed with a business corporation based on private property should know what their rights are, because many things you do at work can cost your job and lead to other sorts of problems. The laws are planted to keep the company money, protect workers' rights and prevent ligitation from happening. Keep it safe, be professional, act mature and respect others around you, because the main thing is to keep your job and not be stuck 99+ weeks in the unemployment line in this economy. It's easier to lose a job than you think!

Example from the story:

2. Myth: The First Amendment protects your ability to say what you want at work.

Fact: The First Amendment prevents the government from restricting your speech, but not a private employer. In most states, an employer can fire you for what you say at work, or even outside of work. (An exception to this is if you're organizing coworkers about wages or working conditions.)

Remember the new version of the WWII propaganda poster: "Loose lips can sink ships" or reedit that: "Loose lips means pink slips!" :no: California state laws are slightly different when it comes to professional misconduct considered an act of discrimination and harrassment which are against any workplace rules (and state civil rights law), so whatever you wanna talk about paranormally and politically, take it outside...and freely discuss or post here in this message board. ^_^

It should be obvious. People should go to work to work and not talk. That's all that should be done.

In the workplace, one is expected to behave highly properly in order to keep their job and not interfere with productivity. But for employees diagnosed with neurobehavioral disorders/disabilities such as autism, some misbehaviors and lack of social cues can't be avoided. I came to think companies should become familiar with issues affecting employees have autism and autistic spectrum disorders and coworkers should be supportive and assist anyone with autism to become successful workers, important assets not spiteful debacles. There's a PSA by the autistic adult community starring Ari Nee'Man, autism rights activist and advisor to President Barack Obama.

The best one coworker can do is not fraternize and keep friendships to acquintescene level or not allow it to interfere with their careers. I gotten to learn the important rules of corporate culture: they take it serious in a workplace environment and we really should, because the employer doesn't want anything to cost the company money and create a ruckus or uncomfortable work environment.

The ABC News series "What Would You Do?" did a live-action undercover segment on the public handles workers with disabilities: in this case, mental disorders and developmental disabilities such as Down's syndrome (and myself a grocery store bagger employee with autism). Guess who has the real problem? I can safely say (and accurately) the unknowing customers whom need to learn patience.

Message From Down syndrome Workers! They're more than you think.
