When is an employment contract necessary?

When getting a new job in Indiana, you may be asked to sign an employment contract. However, this is not always common practice. Many industries do not routinely use contracts for employment, but there are some specific jobs or situations where an employment contract is necessary.

What constitutes religious harassment?

Harassment in the workplace is something you have the right to be protected against. You should never be made to feel uncomfortable because of your religious affiliation when at work in Indiana. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, religious harassment is when someone causes your work environment to be difficult because of his or her issues with your religious choices. It is a complex situation because harassment is more than just a single incident.

What qualifies as wrongful termination?

If you have been fired from your job, you may wonder if the situation falls under the umbrella of wrongful termination. In most cases, the answer will be no. This is because Indiana is an employment-at-will state. You or your employer can end employment for any reason at any time. At John H. Haskin & Associates, LLC, we want you to understand your employment rights and know when something is not lawful and could be wrongful termination.
