Employment rights and issues
UK Employment Law aims to protect employees against unfair treatment in the workplace and during the recruitment process. This legislation covers a wide range of issues including;
- Pre-employment checks and job offers
- Working conditions (such as hours, pay, holiday entitlement, health and safety)
- Redundancy, dismissal and leaving your job
The Worksmart website provides clear, easy to understand information on UK employment rights.
There is more detailed information on employment rights on the GOV.UK website.
If you are an international student, there is additional information on the UKCISA website which will be useful to you.
