Understanding my rights

When Yan found herself being unfairly treated at work, she wasn’t sure which way to turn, but thankfully found our Employment Specialist, Monica.  Monica worked with Yan for six months to explain her rights to her and provide support through the toughest of times. Here Yan tells us her story in her own words…

“I had a great experience with Monica, who helped me with my workplace issues. I didn't know much about employment law or what to do when someone was being unfair to me at work.  Monica worked with me for over six months and was truly amazing throughout that time.

She was very knowledgeable about the laws that protect workers and explained everything to me in a way that was easy to understand.  She informed me about my right to file a formal grievance against the unfair treatment I encountered at work. Throughout this challenging process, Monica was my pillar of strength; she encouraged me and made me feel strong enough to stand up for myself.

Monica is very kind and always took the time to listen to me.  It made a big difference to have someone who really cared about what I was going through. She gave me tremendous encouragement when I was deeply upset because of my job.

I’m really thankful for Monica’s help.  She was more than just a specialist; she was a supportive friend who helped me get back on my feet. Thanks to her, I wasn't alone, and I could handle the tough situation at work.”
