The article introduced the general perception of the people of Nigeria over their rights and obligations, especially as it affects their work place. It explained the term employer and employee and what is expected of both in their work relationship. It also mentioned the benefits derived from the promulgation of the Freedom of Information Act 2011 in Nigeria which helped the citizenry in obtaining certain information hitherto hidden from them by the government and her agencies. Such rights and obligations among others include, payment of salaries, safety at work place, indiscriminate dismissals at work, sick period, discrimination against women, obedience, fair hearing, salary advances, deductions from salaries. It is recommended that every university management should reduce in a document the rights and obligations of employees during their services.
