Your Rights at Work is a comprehensive, jargon-free guide to the legal rights of the employee and the responsibilities of the employer.Accessible and reliable, it offers real solutions to the problems and issues that can face anyone at work. Using the law is always a last resort, but if you have to take that step, there is practical advice on that too. Topics covered include: starting a job, parental leave and maternity rights, e-mail privacy, dismissal and redundancy, pay and holiday rights, and enforcing your rights. Your Rights at Work is written by employment experts at the Trade Union Congress (TUC). As the people who campaigned for many of the rights set out in this book, there is no one better to explain how they should apply in your workplace and what to do if they don't.
