Young Workers' Rights
You have rights on the job, and your employer has the responsibility to provide a safe workplace. OSHA wants you to have a safe and rewarding work experience.
The Rights of Veterans and Reservists
Veterans and reservists who served on active duty for at least 180 days and who did not receive a dishonorable discharge, or were released or discharged from active duty because of a service-connected disability, are covered by federal laws providing for job counseling, training, and placement services, as well as re-employment by their pre-service employer. In some cases, the law entitles them to preferential treatment in getting a job. Employees of government contractors who have a service-connected disability have legal protections against certain types of employment discrimination. The Department of Labor investigates claims under these laws and has the authority to take appropriate enforcement action.
