A salaried employee is someone who receives a fixed amount of pay/salary for the number of hours worked. A salaried person may get their salary either on a weekly basis or on a monthly basis. In order to safeguard the rights of employees, the government has implemented certain rules and regulations. Despite such laws, employers are exploiting their employees because of a lack of awareness and knowledge about their rights. If you are an employee and want knowledge about your rights then this blog is for you. In this blog, we are going to discuss YouTube channels for all employees and labours that create awareness, share information, and make videos related to employees to safeguard their rights.
How employers exploit employees/labours/workers/wage earners
Exploiting means taking undue advantages and being unfair. There are some common ways of exploiting employees, it is as follow:
1. More work and less pay (Underpayment)
This is the most common problem that employees face. Employees are forced to work for long hours that too without breaks and at the time of payment, they are paid a lot less than they deserve. For example, an employee is made to work for 16-17 hours a day but paid for 8-10 hours only.
2. Inequality while making payment
This malpractice takes place in a number of workplaces. Cases in which both male and female employees are working in an organization for the same tenure, but while making the payment the employer pays less to the female employee as compared to male employees. In order to stop this exploitation, the government enacted the Equal Remuneration Act. According to this Act, every employee should be paid equally.
3. Favouritism while selection and promotion
Faced in many MNC’s, where the deserving candidate is exempted and the favourite candidate is selected or prompted. In many cases, relatives and known people are given a chance and opportunity as compared to the more deserving and hardworking employees.
4. Efforts not identified or cherished
There are a number of workplaces where the effort of an employee is ignored. The employees do not receive any motivation or inspiration from the higher hierarchy and top-level authorities. Employees are just made to work and then sent back home.
5. Mental pressure
There are a number of employers who abuse, blackmail and threaten their employees. Some employers also restrict the movement of an employee by seizing the passport or forcing an employee to sign a contract and agreement. This creates an adverse effect and puts physiological pressure on the employees. There are also places where employer harms their employees physically.
