A job should be able to provide people with plenty of what they need. First of all you have the money and financial side of things, which is clearly hugely important but you also need to make sure that you are being looked after in any job and that it is right. The truth is that many workers out there are working jobs which do not give them everything they should be getting from them, and all that means is that they are either going to change trask at some point or have to take it up with their employers – both of which might be messy for both parties. For employers and employees alike, it’s important to know botu some of the things that workers are due and owed, so that we can all be sure as a society that they are being taken care of in the right way.
Probably the most important thing for most workers is the pay. If the pay is not there, then there i hardly any use in working that job, so this is something that employers will always need to focus on in particular in order to make sure that their workers are not going to revolt or turn away from the company. What do we mean by pay, however? It’s not just a simple case of ensuring that everyone does get paid, although hat is a basic which must not be overlooked. It’s also that the pay is fair across gender and age groups, taking into account experience however, and that it is set to rise at least against inflation year upon year. If any of these criteria are not being met, employees absolutely have the right to question it – and to take their skills elsewhere if the business seems to be taking advantage.
More workers should be aware of exactly what compensation they are owed if they truly want to be able to make the most of their jobs. The sad truth is that a lot of employers do not go out of their way to make it clear what the worker might be entitled to on this front, so it is up to the worker in question to take it into their own hands. It might be that they need to look into an industry-specific case, such as the Defense Base Act. The Defense Base Act needs an experienced legal team to work, so employees would benefit from thinking about it early on to try and get the best representation for themselves. In either case, getting any compensation owed should be a huge priority for all workers.
Being safe at work is a legal essential, but the truth is that the responsibility lies with both the employer and the employee. Being safe is at least something we should all be able to expect at work, and if there is anything getting in the way of it we all should remember to question it and fight for our right to be safe.
