Do you have the right to refuse to do unsafe work?

Here's a scenario: You show up to the restaurant where you work to find firetrucks parked outside. There's a gas leak somewhere in the area, and the scent of gas is rather strong. Your boss admits that he's been told not to start any cooking until the firefighters give the word because of a gas leak into the sewer. Your boss, however, is convinced that if he flushes the drains out and opens a window, it's safe to start work and he doesn't want to wait.

Did your boss force you to quit? Consider talking to an attorney

Phrase letters of complaint about workplace bullying carefully

Workplace bullies come in all shapes and sizes -- but complaining to human resources or a boss about a bully has to be done carefully. Otherwise, you might be the person who ends up fired -- just for complaining!
