Knowing your rights as an employee is important, but it’s also important to know what to do when you believe those rights have been violated.
As an employee in Arizona, you are entitled to:
- The right to a safe work environment, free from undue dangers
- The right to a degree of privacy in your personal matters
- The right not to be discriminated against on grounds of your age, race, national origin, gender, ethnicity, pregnancy, religion, or disability
- The right not to be discriminated against on the basis of marital status, gender identity, sexual orientation and other characteristics
- The right to fair pay. Employers are required to pay a least the Arizona minimum wage plus overtime for all hours worked over 40 hours a week.
- The right to a workplace environment with no harassment
Depending on the size of your employer, you may also be entitled to:
- The right to take time from work to tend to your own, or a family member’s, illness, and
- The right to take leave following the birth of a child.
If you believe your rights as an employee have been violated, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced lawyer.
