Without question, healthcare can be a rewarding but incredibly demanding industry. Hours can be long and stressful situations are common. As a result, the environment and culture in which healthcare professionals work must promote mental, emotional, and physical health. It should be one where employees feel valued, encouraged, and confident in knowing that their rights are protected.
Unfortunately, this is not the case in far too many workplaces. There may be situations in which healthcare professionals encounter employers who wrongfully discriminate or allow harassment and in doing so, create a hostile and intolerable work environment. In other instances, healthcare professionals may suffer from wage issues, whether it is refusing to pay earned overtime, withholding commissions, or misclassifying workers in a way that denies them rightfully earned compensation or benefits. In still other circumstances, there may be unjust contractual terms or unsafe working conditions.
