Employees in the United States expect certain rights and benefits in the workplace. While all workers might not be fully aware how far these employee rights extend, it is clear that employees have the right to take action if they believe they are not having his or her rights or employee benefits upheld. In these matters, disputes could erupt and employees that are part of a union could take steps to protect these rights.
Employees in New York and elsewhere are afforded certain rights and benefits. This not only makes the work experience more enjoyable and safe for these employees but also guarantees that they are treated fairly in the work environment. Arguably, the most important protections are wage and hour protections.
