    I find it disturbing that they put so much effort into punishing employee offenders when employer offenders are just as prevalent if not more so. basically we are getting a ton of concrete laws enforced on employees and a ton of loopholes protecting employers.

      You are entitled to your opinion, but this is not a chat room for discussions. If you have a legal question, please ask it; if not, there are other forums more appropriate than this for such discussions.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        yes, I guess I should have also asked the question I was alluding to. are there any such laws and poster containing them that display the other side I speak of?

        also, as evidenced by my post count, I am a very green member here. I accept responsibility for posting "opinion" in the wrong place. I was not fully aware of the etiquette of these boards & it wont happen again. you could be constructive & point me to a more suitable place here to discuss these views.

          We are all volunteers here and do this in addition to our jobs and our families. I don't mean to sound harsh here, but we're not here to point you to chat rooms. You can google for them just as easily as we can. This just isn't one of them.
          I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

            There are plenty of laws protecting employees. There just doesn't happen to be one that guarantees employment.

            I am not familiar with any specific chat rooms.

              I understand and appreciate the fact that you guys are willing to volunteer your time for free like you do. you guys are an invaluable asset to many people like myself who cant afford to seek counsel any other way. I guess I misunderstood what cbg was saying about this not being the proper place. I understood that to mean there may be a proper forum on this site. my mistake again. I apologize for taking up board space for this but could not find a PM function...

              let me repay you both for the advice you have given me concerning legal matters. my advice comes in the form of life matters. if your volunteer work takes away from your personal or professional life to the point where you have lost the virtues of patience & compassion its time to take a break. there is nothing binding you to volunteer work. take it for what its worth...
