I believe that employee work rights and their duties go hand in hand.
Just like when the employee has duties to perform, his or hers rights should be implemented too at the same time. Having employee rights in place, this gives them a sense of happiness and confidence every day when they come to work. It gives them a sense of belonging to the workplace.
Just like unionized workers have many rights in their workplace, other non-unionized workers should get their own rights too or even the same. Giving employees their own rights when they come to work every single day, the employer can expect a strong commitment from them. It is a win-win situation. The employee rights really does guarantee them from illegal and unethical discrimination.
Giving employees their own rights when they come to work, there should be an agreement between the employer and employee should the employees have any complaints or concerns regarding their work. Maybe it is an unsafe environment or verbal abuse by other employees or managers. What ever the case may be, employees should have the right to talk to their employers and tell them about these problems.
The employers or management of the Company should take instances of employee rights violation seriously and address them at the earliest. This can happen when a new employee is hired or even organizing a monthly meeting to all employees and updating them with their own work place law rules.
There are some employee rights that the employer or manager must guarantee at the work place. This is required by law. Once again, every new and older employee at that place of employment should know the laws there. Here are some of them summarized below:
The Rights Against Racial Discrimination
The Rights Against Age Discrimination
The Rights Against Religious Discrimination
The Rights Against Same Sex Discrimination
If any of these laws are violated, the employer or company can face severe legal implications as they can be sued by the affected employee(s).
