What are my rights?
Your employer has responsibilities: to direct the work you do, pay your wages, and provide a safe place to work. You have responsibilities in return. These include doing the work you were hired to do and being loyal to your employer. But you don’t have to follow instructions that are unreasonable or unlawful. Learn your rights and options if your employer asks you to do something concerning.
