Are you being treated unfairly at work?
Unfair treatment at work comes in many forms. Unsure if you are being treated unfairly at work? Here are a few examples:
(1)The corporation, (or company), hires someone for a top level or management position from outside the company, passing over the loyal employee who has worked for the company for years and years. This is especially unfair treatment if the loyal employee has been doing the job the outside person has been hired for, (and even worse if the loyal employee will be expected to train the new person!)
(2)There is a new boss, and suddenly, the entire workplace is experiencing an extreme amount of “job strain”. Job strain happens when a worker is expected to do a large amount of work in too short of time, with little or no control over how, when, and with what tools said work will get done in. If you find that you are unable to obtain the tools you are required to use to get this job done in, that adds to your job strain. Job strain, and the detrimental effects it has on a person’s health is compounded by how long a person has to put up with excessive job strain. This treatment at work is especially unfair if the workers were doing exactly what they were supposed to be doing before the new boss showed up, and arbitrarily changed the rules and job descriptions.
(3)When you were hired, you were granted a certain number of sick days, personal days, and vacation days. As time goes on, you find more and more rules created that prevent you from using the paid time off you have earned. For example, if you are told that no one can take vacation days during “the holidays” and learn that the holidays are defined as the entire months of October, November, December, and January, this is unfair treatment at work. If, at the same time, you notice that certain employees seem to get to take days off whenever they want to, with little notice provided, this is especially unfair treatment at work…
