If you are looking for information on how to sue your employer for terminating your employment or how to make claims after suffering an injury at work, then this site is not for you.
Being in retail is not for everyone. The hours are long, wages are low, working on weekends and public holidays is expected for those who have customer facing roles, as is working after hours to get the store ready for the start of sales and there is an expectation you should always be in a good mood even when dealing with demanding customers.
Thankfully, there are laws in place for those in retail and those who perform shift work that aim to give all those within the industry protection from being exploited and to ensure a balanced lift is lead.
As knowing your rights and what to expect in the workplace is something we learn over time, this site looks at some of those laws and what you should expect when working within retail.
