Main Responsibilities of Employees
Employees have responsibilities towards their employers, even if they work part time or don't have a written contract with their employers.
These are the main responsibilities of employees to personally do the work they were hired to do. to do their work carefully and seriously (In some cases, they could be fired or disciplined if they're often late for work, or if they're absent too often or for no good reason.) to avoid putting themselves or others in danger to follow their employer's instructions (There are some exceptions. For example, if an employer asks an employee to do something dangerous or illegal, the employee doesn't have to.)to be loyal.
NOTE : If an employee signs a written contract with the employer, it might place more responsibilities on the employer than the ones required by law.
For example, an employment contract might say that the employer has to pay employees who have to use their own cars to do their jobs.
Or the contract might also say that the employer has to pay back their employees for travel or entertainment expenses if they show their receipts.
When Employees Don't Respect Their Responsibilities
If employees don't respect their responsibilities, the employer is allowed to take certain actions: discipline employees, such as giving a written warning, or suspending them take other action against employees, such as giving a letter evaluating their performance, or demoting them (that is, giving them a lower job).
fire employees if they do something very serious, such as stealing from the office take employees to court to make them pay an amount of money (for example, if an employee quits without telling the employer in advance, or if an employee quits before the date in the employment contract) take employees to court to stop them from doing things that are harmful to the business.
Employers' Responsibilities Towards Employees
Employers must give their employees a place to work and make sure they have access to it. They must give them the tools, equipment and other things they need to do their work.
Employers must pay their employees the salary and benefits they agreed to, including vacation, paid holidays and other types of holidays.
Employers must make sure their employees' working conditions are safe.
In some cases, employers must give their employees written notice that their contracts are ending or that they are being laid off. Note that employers can pay employees a sum of money instead of giving the notice.
Employers must treat their employees with respect. They must make sure their employees are not harassed or discriminated against.
