章节摘录
  The
Rights
of
Employees  1
When
the
United
States
became
a
nation
more
than
200
years
ago,
the
Founders
made
a
Constitution
that
structured
the
new
society
as
a
majoritarian
democracy.
They
later
added
a
Bill
of
Rights
to
protect
individuals
from
the
tyranny
of
the
majority.
But
in
the
18th
century,
when
the
Constitution
and
Bill
of
Rights
were
passed,
the
government
was
viewed
as
the
only
major
threat
to
individual
rights.
The
Founders
could
not
have
imagined
back
then
that,
one
day,
concentrations
of
corporate
power
would
exist
on
a
scale
competing
with,
and
in
some
cases
exceeding,
governmental
power.  2
Today,
most
Americans
are
more
vulnerable
to
having
their
rights
violated
by
their
employers
than
the
early
Americans
were
to
having
their
rights
violated
by
the
government.
Yet
because
the
Constitution
does
not
limit
their
authority,
private
employers
are
free
to
violate
the
civil
liberties
of
their
employees.
Nationwide,
the
American
Civil
Liberties
Union
receives
more
complaints
about
abuses
by
employers
than
about
abuses
by
the
government:  3*
In
California,
a
job
applicant
was
denied
a
job
because
he
refused
to
answer
questions
about
his
sex
life
on
a
"psychological
test."
At
least
millions
of
job
applicants
are
required
to
take
such
tests
every
year.  4*
In
Pennsylvania,
an
employee
was
fired
because
he
pointed
out
serious
safety
defects
in
his
employer's
products.
At
least
200,000
Americans
are
unjustly
fired
every
year.  5*
In
Indiana,
an
employee
was
fired
because
she
smoked
cigarettes
in
her
own
home.
At
least
6,000
American
companies
now
attempt
to
regulate
off-duty
smoking
and
other
private
behavior.  6
I
The
ACLU
believes
that
such
abuses
can
only
be
prevented
by
extending,
into
the
private
workplace,
the
protections
guaranteed
in
the
Bill
of
Rights.
Certainly,
we
recognize
that
employers
have
every
right
to
expect
workers
to
do
their
jobs
But
employees
are
also
entitled
to
the
same
freedoms
on
the
job
that
they
enjoy
off
the
job.  7
Here
are
the
ACLUs
answers
to
some
questions
frequently
asked
by
the
public
about
the
rights
of
American
employees.
If
the
Constitution
doesn't
apply
to
the
private
workplace,
what
does?  8
The
vast
majority
of
American
employees,
of
whom
there
are
100
million
in
all,
are
governed
by
a
doctrine
called"
employment
at
will."
This
doctrine,
a
relic
of
19th
century
anti-labor
laws,
gives
employers
the
right
to
fire
workers
at
any
time,
for
any
reason.
Indeed,
one
can
be
fired
for
no
reason
at
all.
An
estimated
200,000
employees
at
least,
are
unjustly
fired
in
the
United
States
each
year.  9
It
is
the
employment-at-will
doctrine
that
empowers
employers
to
impose
unwarranted
urine
tests
and
"personality"
and
"integrity"
tests
on
their
employees
The
power
to
fire
at
will
permits
employers
to
limit
their
employees'
right
to
free
speech.  10
Are
there
any
laws
that
protect
employees'
rights?  11
There
are
federal
and
state
laws
that
prohibit
discrimination
against
individuals
on
the
basis
of
race,
religion,
sex,
national
origin,
age
and
disability.
However,
these
laws
require
only
that
employees
be
treated
equally.
Employers
are,
therefore,
free
to
do
whatever
they
wish
to
their
employees
as
long
as
they
do
so
in
a
non-discriminatory
manner.  ……
