Your Rights at Work
Kogan Page, 2004 - Employee rights - 242 pages
Praise and Reviews
`This book should have a readership of about 25 million. Just about every worker in this country has something to gain from dipping into this simply written guide to their employment rights.`
Employee rights have improved thanks to new laws such as the working time regulations, the national minimum wage and new rights for parents. Most employers exceed these minimum standards, but things can go wrong in even the best-run workplaces. Stress, bullying and long hours are on the increase.
This practical guide, written by employment experts at the TUC, has been fully updated and expanded to include information on gains in employment law, pensions and new issues such as e-mail privacy. Your Rights at Work offers comprehensive, jargon-free advice for both union and non-union members. It covers sensitive issues such as:
parental leave and maternity rights;
discrimination and bullying;
dismissal and redundancy;
pay and holiday rights;
Problems at work can usually be solved without involving the law, but it helps if you know your legal rights and your employer's responsibilities. Your Rights at Work will bring you up to date with the latest legal developments. Everyone at work should have this unique guide.
