Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Do these employees have contracts?
Or, as I think you are inquiring about your rights to this information, do you have an employment contract?
only non compete agreements they are investment counselors
Unless an employee has an employment agreement stating otherwise, the employee is not entitled to this information.
I think you are inquiring if an employee is entitled to information or documents concerning human resources investigation or discipline?
not entitled to what information? are we on the same page? these were calls i had with these people they reported me to hr because they thought i was too rude
You asked "what rights do employees have when being investigated?" I thought you may be inquiring if you are entitled to information pertaining to the investigation.
Please let me know what rights you are inquiring about.
I appreciate your patience.
It appears that you are an "at will" employee. The most important aspect of that type of an employment relationship is that an employer may terminate employment with no cause.
As such, the "at will" employee's rights are limited.
There are exceptions of course.
no i wassaying that i don"t believe I am getting fair consideration. hr is not listening to the facts that led up to the calls they are focusing on the calls and it appears they are trying to hang me
in other words should i hire an attorney to speak on behalf, will i be heard if i were to do that or wait it out
Anti-discrimination laws are the only aspect of employment legally mandating fairness. Generally, an employer may be unfair if it choose. Most do not treat employees fairly as it creates a lack of trust and problems for the employer/
You should write your position down and submit that to the human resources manager.
Hiring an attorney may be of little use in an at-will situation as the employer still has no obligation to be fair. But, it may be wise to have an attorney examine employment memos, policies and other documents looking for statements that may arguably take this out of the "at will" realm or provide you legal recourse here.
i did that and so far i have not gotten anywhere. this is a 26 year career i am a chief compliance officer in the securities industry i can't always be sweet and nice
A human resources department may view obtaining representation as a hostile action so you will need to weigh the issue. If you feel termination is likely then you should obtain an attorney to assist you.
