Do you really know who you work for?
I ask that because I have seen numerous posts from people that don't know the difference between being an employee, an independent contractor, a contracted employee, a non employee etc. Early in my career I didn't know the distinctions and got "caught" as a 1099 contractor which meant I wasn't getting benefits including unemployment. It's important to know what kind of employment you have. Even if you "work" at a hospital, school, company etc. you may not be an employee of that organization. I recently was part of an employee action when an employee of a contracted vendor for our cafeteria misunderstood who they worked for. They filed action against my organization when they failed to get action under the actual employer. I felt awful for the individual, but they were not legally our employee.
