Workshops

feature1Whether you work for a private company or the government, it is important for you to know what the law can and can’t do for if problems arise at work. Law in Action’s Workshop program offers a free job rights presentation once or twice per year in Greenville.

The workshop is designed for working people and will be scheduled accordingly.

Some of the questions that will be answered during the one hour session are the following:

  • I have heard of the “at will” rule but does that mean I can be fired for anything at all?
  • Are there exceptions to the “at will” rule?
  • My company violated its handbook when it fired me. What can I do about that?
  • I work for the government and they have a grievance procedure. I think the process if one sided: should I bother to file the grievance?
  • Should I even bother to file for unemployment?
  • What evidence do I need to prove discrimination?
  • If I was fired because of discrimination what steps do I need to take to challenge it?
  • What can I do about a bad reference that is hurting my chances at getting a new job?
