It's apparently true that most people DO NOT #read their #Employee #Handbook, Employee Manuals, Employment Policies and Requirements and definitely not their State Wage and Hours Laws. I know from working in HR for almost 20 years and especially being on here. This is truly sad because people end up losing so much by not looking into what's important and your RIGHTS is what's important more than anything. Educate yourself on what your rights are NOW! EDUCATE YOURSELF on your #RIGHTS in your #State.

[Google... (your states) wage and hour laws]

Stay #educated! Don't let these employers back you into a corner and scare you into thinking you have NO RIGHTS because you do. The problem is YOU DIDN'T BOTHER TO READ THEM! If you did read them, you didn't go to refresh your memory about them.

If you have been terminated, request in writing your PERSONNEL FILE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I can not stress that enough.

Listening to most of your stories, if they happened as told, you all have real live legal suits that you would win. Did you read that? You WOULD #WIN!

Stop being victims and start being #VICTORIOUS!

My first Boss (intimidatingly large fellow in belt and suspenders and a classic 80's banking hairdoo) would admonish me with "Goff, you are a non-reader!" when I missed something obvious in a contract or memo. I actually like reading fiction and books in general, but I move fast and can get sloppy with interpretation of office docs and business papers- and in this world where everything is moving faster and faster and thoughts are reduced to 140 characters, its even easier to glance over and miss longer messages in emails or letters and such.

But, slow down. Read. Digest.

So often the employer's interview notes, job offers, or rejection letters have details that could impact your decision or give you strategies for success. I see my welcome message to Jobcasers sometimes be mis-interpreted as a job-offer at Jobcase Inc. While we'd love to hire thousands, we just don't have the resources for that (we only have about 100 of us building this platform for everyone right now). I get what happens. People are busy. A long message comes in, you glance, and potentially surmise the wrong gist of the message. But in todays speed of action - suggest we all SLOW DOWN. Take a minute to make sure you read a full msg and understand fully whats going on.
I continue to work on this myself, so I know slowing down and reading fully can take a bit of discipline. But it also can lead to better performance, and grabbing more opportunity!

#twocents. #read. #slowdown
