Know Your Rights

What happens when you find a job? The next thing on most people’s mind is how much are they getting paid and when their holiday starts. Although that is perhaps the main thing on most people’s minds, we all have to be aware of the fact that we do have rights and being aware ensures that one’s employer is not able to take advantage and exploit. IN the United Kingdom, the rights of employers are taken very seriously and if an employer is found in breach of those laws then they are held liable. However, in terms of what rights an individual has all depends on two things; first, your “Statutory Rights” and secondly, your “contract of employment”.

Statutory Rights are legal rights based on laws passed by the British Parliament (everyone who resides in the United Kingdom is protected by these laws, provided they have their legal stay).
