Has your employer been dishonest or mislead you?
Employers frequently have the upper hand when it comes to employer/employee
relationships. While there are many good employers who sincerely care
about keeping promises to employees, there are some bad apples that don't
have your best interests at heart.
It is not uncommon for an employer to tell employees or potential new hires
one thing, but to intentionally not follow through or do something completely
different altogether. Such empty promises or misleading statements commonly involve:
- Insurance benefits
- Time off
- Position of employment (occupation)
- Length of employment
At times unscrupulous employers use false and misleading statements to
get a potential new hire to accept a position, or to get a current employee
to stay in a position that they would otherwise abandon. Unfortunately,
when such intentional misrepresentations get an employee to agree to do
something they would have otherwise done differently if they had the true
information, it can affect many aspects of the employee's personal
and professional life, including their job, family, income and career.
All potential hires, new hires, and employees have the right to honesty
and the truth about their jobs and what they entail. No employer has the
right to intentionally make false promises or misleading statements that
give false hope to employees.
