Problems in the workplace can usually be solved without involving the law, but sometimes it is necessary. Stress, bullying and long working hours are increasingly being reported, as well as new issues such as email privacy. It is therefore important that you understand your legal rights at work and are aware of your employer's responsibilities to you and what action you can take should you feel your rights are being infringed.
Your Rights at Work is written by employment experts at the TUC and covers every potential issue that you may face during your working life, such as parental leave and maternity rights, discrimination and bullying, dismissal and redundancy, and pay and holiday rights. There is comprehensive advice on how to deal with them and further information on employment tribunals.
Everybody has legal rights at work and this guide will allow you to not only understand what they are, but to take action whilst feeling assured that you are within your right to do so.
