When do you have rights as an employee?
Employees and employers have rights during unionization attempts and during the collective bargaining process. In this lesson, you’ll learn about the rights of employers, as well as the restrictions to which they are subject, during these processes.
Do you have First Amendment rights in the workplace?
The answer depends on whether the employer is a public or private entity, the type of speech involved, and the employee’s position. Employees in the public sector – who work for governmental entities – have First Amendment rights in the workplace, subject to certain restrictions.
Can a employer limit the 2nd Amendment rights of employees?
States can certainly limit ownership with licensing and permitting schemes, rules about transporting weapons across lines, and employers can create limited exceptions like the one at the DA’s office, which does not deprive its employees of the right to bear arms altogether.
Do you have freedom of speech in the workplace?
One question that frequently comes up during a discussion of employment law issues is whether employees have freedom of speech in the workplace. The answer depends on whether the employer is a public or private entity, the type of speech involved, and the employee’s position.
How are employee rights and privacy related in the workplace?
Employees and employers are charting new territory as they try to balance employee rights with a company’s legitimate business interests. Given the range of possible activities that can occur in social media, it’s only natural that there’s tension between an employer’s interests and its employees’ rights to privacy.
Are there any rights for private sector employees?
State constitutional law frequently follows this pattern. Private sector employees have legal rights based upon legislation, an employment contract, or a court’s determination that public policy requires that the right be granted. The National Labor Relations Act and the Civil Rights Act illustrate legislative protection.
Can a employer tell me who my Facebook friends are?
Pamela Koslyn. An employer can’t dictate who your “real” friends are, or who your Facebook “friends” are (if this your personal Facebook account and not your company’s account) without stomping all over your constitutional rights, including freedom of speech and association.
Can a former employer dictate who an employee can and can’t?
Ben, though this may not make you feel any better about not being able to communicate with your friends, it’s a sign of the times. As I noted, chances are it will “evaporate” over time, once you are “off the radar screen” of your former employer.
