Our workplace can either be our home or a place we do not want to put ourselves in. Around the world, more and more people get very stressed at work that they put their health, relationships, and personal concerns at stake.
In Japan, for example, employees are exposed to extreme level of stress because of the high amount of pressure that their employers push on them. They have even coined a term “karoshi” to refer to situations where stress from work caused them their lives. Overwork has taken a high toll on them that it lead many to commit suicide because they cannot bear the pressure anymore.
Sadly, this is not only happening in Japan but it affects all the employees around the world, including those who are living in Adelaide and some parts of Australia, who face the same stress at work.
Thankfully, we have employment and industrial law specialists Adelaide who can help us address the issues we have regarding our employment. These are some of the basics ways on which they can help us.
Our Employment Contract
Many people get attracted to work for companies who have a good name in the market. Yet, it is not an assurance that if a company has earned some name in the hierarchy of employers, they could give us the perfect job experience that we have dreamed of.
So, when we want to apply for any company, and was hired, we have to make sure that every deal is written down. It is advisable that we have a written contract so we have reference in the future. A contract can help us see clearer the rights we have as an employee so we can refer to it in case an employment issue arise or we have been denied by our rights.
We have to secure a copy for ourselves and make sure we keep it within our reach so it would be easy to refer to it. The signed should be signed by both parties to make it legal. Always refer to it whenever you feel you have been overloaded with responsibilities or not compensated according to the agreement.
Also it is very important to seek legal advice if ever you encounter unfair dismissal in Adelaide.
The Releasing of our Salary
When we start working, everything should be clearly laid out so there would be no confusion in the long run. Every worker is protected with rights entitling them to receive the minimum wage whatever work they engage in. So, every payday, we must make sure we are paid with the exact amount we worked for.
Leaves and vacations are the rights that are entitled for every employee that has been permanently working any job for a company. There are laws that govern such vacations and they should be properly granted to employees. Leaves and vacations are entitled to employees to give them a break from their work and refresh them as well.
At every work environment, everyone’s rights should be protected and respected. When rights granted, then it should be dealt legally and with due process.
