When you are starting work with a new employer, you might find it nerve wracking to say the least. You want to make sure that it all goes right and that you attend to the job well, and that is something that you can do a lot about. However, it works both ways. It is also important to know that your new employer is going to treat you in the way that you would expect to be treated, and that is something that you can look into as early as possible to ensure that it is the right kind of employer for you. Let’s take a look at some of the things you can and should expect from a new employer.
There is a kind of relationship that goes on between you and your employer, and it needs to have respect flowing in both directions. Without this, you will find it much more challenging to actually be happy in your work, or to feel as though you are working for the right person. So seek out this respect in your employer, and if you don’t have it you might want to think about your options. By respect here, we simply mean the basic human respect you are deserving of in any environment. If you don’t have that, it’s not going to be a good place to work.
Your employer also has a duty to do whatever they can to keep you safe, so you are going to have to make sure that you find an employer who does that as well. That means that they are clear on health and safety rules, they provide you with plenty of training on it, and they do everything in their power to keep the workplace as safe as possible. If they don’t do all this and you suffer for it, you might find yourself contacting the Law Office of Todd Burris or similar to ensure that you are heard. It’s invaluable that you can remain safe while at work.
It is of course completely understandable that everyone should be fairly paid for the work that they do. Your pay should reflect the challenges and potential dangers of your role, and if it doesn’t then this is something that you can take up with them, or with a union if it comes to that. Fair pay also means equal pay, and you should be receiving the same amount of money for someone of the same level of experience who is in the same role level, regardless of incidental factors like age or gender. If this is not the case, then you have a legitimate reason to blow the whistle.
All of these things are things that you can expect from every employer, so make sure that you have them when you go to work somewhere new. In each case there is something that you can do about it if it isn’t being attended to, and you should make a point of taking those steps.
