On “Psychology Behind the Headlines,” hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest psychotherapist Lauren Jeffrey discuss a new study suggesting that loyal employees may be more likely to be exploited with extra, often unpaid work.

Know Your Rights

Be aware of your employment terms and conditions. It’s important to understand what obligations you have and set healthy boundaries.

It’s a Business Transaction

Remember that work is a place where you exchange your time and skills for money. Don’t feel pressured to sacrifice more for an employer than is agreed upon.
