Defending Your Rights and Responsibilities

Legalby Ariana Smith23 January 2019


There are times when people get upset if there is a contradiction or discrepancy between how they are treated and what they believe their rights and responsibilities to be. This can be a complicated relationship, but since every person can potentially view their interactions with the outside world in different ways, it’s essential for each person to meditate on what they feel the appropriate connection should be.

Think of some abstract and concrete ways that you can illustrate the defense of your rights and responsibilities. In many cases, you may need to use legal representation to get your point across, especially in a criminal situation. A lot of people are very confused about what their constitutional rights are, and that leads to all sorts of frustration and tension in different situations. And, as an employer, you will have specific responsibilities to those people who are working for you. Those are just three small examples of times when you need to look very precisely at what your rights and responsibilities are.

Legal Representation:

In the most literal sense, you may have to defend your rights in a court setting. That means you have to hire legal representation to give yourself the strongest voice that you can in a legal context. It may be a criminal case, or it may be a civil case. But no matter what the situation is, you may not know the ins and outs of the legal system as it surrounds your particular circumstance. That’s why it’s so important to hire the people that have your best interest in mind.

Constitutional Rights:

When is the last time you studied what your constitutional rights are? So many people think that they are experts, but they have never actually looked into the original language or its interpretations, especially relating to basic civics. If you want to get in an argument with someone about your or their constitutional rights, make sure that you know what you’re talking about ahead of time. Stating false examples to illustrate your point of view is only going to make the person arguing against you dig in further.

Responsibilities as an Employer:

A final thing that you might consider when it comes to defending your rights and responsibilities might be what your responsibilities are as an employer. For example, you are responsible for the safety of your workers and in some instances your clients. To this end, make sure that you follow OSHA guidelines or other federal regulations as associated with this topic. You cannot abdicate your responsibility as an employer any more than you can infringe on the rights of your employees to have a safe and secure workplace within a reasonable framework and structure. Employers who lose the sense of responsibility are the ones who end up losing their businesses or sometimes even going to jail.
