    Understanding PTSD

    Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) manifests itself in a variety of ways. While most people associate the disorder with flashbacks and dramatic outbursts, PTSD also comes with a host of other symptoms that are easily missed. The disorder could impact nearly every aspect of a person’s life, from quality of sleep to daily mood.

    Know Your Rights!

    WEINGARTEN RIGHTS EMPLOYEE'S RIGHT TO UNION REPRESENTATION The right of employees to have union representation at investigatory interviews was announced by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 1975 case (NLRB vs. Weingarten, Inc. 420 U.S. 251, 88 LRRM 2689). These rights have become known as the Weingarten rights. Employees have Weingarten rights only during investigatory interviews.

    Know Your Garrity Rights

    GARRITY RIGHTS Garrity Rights protect public employees from being compelled to incriminate themselves during investigatory interviews conducted by their employers. This protection stems from the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which declares that the government cannot compel a person to be a witness against him/herself.
