Workplace rights FAQs


This is a slightly broad topic, as it could easily contain almost all employment law issues. However, we have restricted it those general rights which all employees should enjoy at work, such as:

  • Annual leave
  • Maternity leave/pay
  • Sick leave
  • Minimum wage

They are not situations that arise such as discrimination or redundancy, these are FAQs regarding basic rights which should be enjoyed from day one in your place of employment.

If you feel you are not being given these basic rights, your employer will be in the wrong and in most cases the issue will be able to be backdated. For more advice give us a call on 08001 221 2299 or fill in the web-form and we'll call you back. Often a simple letter from a solicitor will be enough to fix the situation and give you peace of mind.
