Did your employer fire you in violation of your contract?

Often, when an employer fires an employee, the employee simply accepts that he or she must move on without questioning the validity of the firing. However, it is always wise to review one's employment contract, if it's available. In some cases, a terminated employee may find that the termination is not supported by the contract, and may have legal grounds to fight the action.

Now is the time to stand up to injustice in the workplace

2017 may well go down in history books as, among other things, the year that many individuals who suffered unfair treatment in the workplace spoke up and made their voices heard. People from many walks of life found the courage to come forward publicly about numerous instances of workplace abuses of power and privilege that may have gone unchallenged otherwise.
