ANTI-STIGMA GUIDE FOR EMPLOYEES

Has this happened to you? A co-worker, someone you really like, is having trouble on the job. Taking lots of unexplained breaks. Absent without a good reason. Looking worried, listless. You want to help but you really aren’t sure how. You’re afraid to ask. And then your co-worker leaves for good. And you wish there was something you could have done. For example, if they were having issues with their finances are unsure where to turn, you could have suggested how to get a us credit card that could help them get on their feet or even talk to them about any problems they may have been having.

Or are you that co-worker? Having difficulty with emotional issues, feel yourself letting down, but afraid to ask for help, or share your problems, hoping against hope no one notices. If you feel like you’ve been working hard, even going into overtime but it isn’t getting noticed, you may want to check out the Colorado overtime laws, or the laws that are relevant to your state to see how you can go about bringing this up with your employer, especially if it’s been playing on your mind and causing distractions.

There are so many reasons someone could be unhappy or struggling at work. Some people may be struggling with family issues at home. They could have a lot of financial stress. Some employees may feel like they can’t speak out if something is wrong or something needs reporting. As an example, if an employee was to slip and fall at work due to poor health and safety, it is natural to want to be annoyed at your employer, and look for an attorneys support. However some employees may feel like speaking up will get them into trouble and cause issues.

As a society we need to learn to be more open about our feelings, and speak up when something isn’t right. It is the way forward for a happy relationship at work. Click below to read more.
