The paper "Individual Rights Employees Have within an Employment Relationship" is a great example of a management assignment. Employment legal cases and processes have been rising in society. Employers have many times failed to realize that they can reduce the flame during employment course by being honest with employees about concerns and problems and by putting in place mechanisms that would allow them to effectively manage employee discipline, discharge, and performance. It is less costly to have good practice in employee relations management than the cost of defending the organization against a lawsuit.
If employers implement good practices for employee relations they will avoid litigation. Employees have individual rights that if not respected by the employer it will lead to litigation. The employment relationship is the link between employers and employees that exists when an employee performs services or works under certain given conditions in return for remuneration. Defined obligations and rights between employee and employer are created through the employee relationship. The employment relationship is affected by external and internal factors. Organization politics as an internal factor can have either a positive or negative impact in the workplace and can also reflect the kind of labor relations policy that an organization can have.
An organization that entertains nepotism can provide high favoritism in work promotion and fraud in financial transactions. Another internal factor is changes in management. Employees will be concerned about its effect on their jobs, advancement opportunities, pay issues, working conditions, and benefits. Inflation as an external factor can affect the employment relationship negatively. The employer may be unable to raise the salaries as expected by employees who may become discontented and seek greener pastures.
This may affect the organization’ s profitability. Labour unions as an external factor can influence the employment relationship.
