Optimism marks the start of every new work position. What is not obvious in the interview process is a possible toxic work environment. Slowly, you might realize that your colleagues seem exhausted and maybe even resentful of their position. Many employers create a work culture that demands overtime. Depending on your field, it may be normal for your employer to request full commitment to your workload through the use of overtime. You have the right to be compensated for your work, and sometimes that means overtime pay and paid sick days. What is abnormal and is an abuse of employer conduct is unpaid overtime and sick days.
It is unfortunate that employers exploit the dedication and effort of their employees. Everyday people are stripped of their worker’s rights when employers engage in unfair pay practices. Often fear and pressure add to the stress of the work environment. If this situation of unpaid overtime and sick days sounds familiar, there is a possibility you could file a claim under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The first and most important thing you can do is become educated about your employee rights. To start, you must value your own voice in the matter.
