Where to find information about your employment rights
If you work in the UK you have a number of rights relating to your employment. These include the right:
- to be earning a minimum hourly age
- to be given a minimum amount of time off in the year,
- to work in an environment that complies with health and safety regulations, and
- not to be discriminated against on the grounds of gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, colour, ethnic background, religion or age.
If you are interested in finding out more about any of these rights, as well as information on flexible working, joining a union and a range of other topics, see guidance on working, jobs and pensions at GOV.UK (external link) or the Citizen's Advice Bureau's employment advice guide (external link). You can also visit your local Citizen's Advice Bureau in person to talk through your queries or concerns.
If you feel you have been discriminated against in the workplace, you may find guidance on the Equalities and Human Rights Commission website (external link).
Health and safety
If you have concerns about the health and safety standards in your workplace, you can contact the council who provide free advice on health and safety at work.
If you need to know more about your pension, see the Directgov - Pensions information website (external link)
