As an employee, you have a number of rights and they protect you from feeling uncomfortable or threatened at work. They also go a long way to protect you from your employer acting in nefarious ways. That doesn't mean that your employer or fellow employees will respect these rights, but you do have them and you can take proper steps to uphold them.
At the same time, many employers and companies act within their rights when they take action, or refuse action, against employees. It is important to remember that not every company acts in nefarious ways.
But many companies do. They toe the line of what is acceptable, may it be legally or morally (and often these matters overlap). There are many different areas when employment law can become an issue between employees, or an employee and his or her employer. Someone could discriminate against an employee, or the company may allow discrimination to happen or continue. An employer could retaliate against an employee. An employer may withhold certain benefits from an employee in an unlawful manner.
When these terrible things occur, it behooves the affected employee (or employees) to seek out experienced legal representation.
