Employment law for employees

You as an employee have rights in the workplace, these rights may differ depending on the contract you signed as the outset of your employment and the type of roll you have within the company, so it’s vital to know which rights apply to you. This can help ensure that you are always treated fairly in your job and that you are aware of your legal rights, should you encounter any problems in the workplace.

There are two different types of employee rights – firstly there is your Basic Statutory Rights which apply to every employee, and secondly there are the rights set out in your employment contract. Getting to grips with understanding your employment rights, and knowing if they are being broken, is the best way to ensure that you are being treated fairly at work.

Here at AJC Law we pride ourselves on understanding the perspective of any individual, however senior and experienced, when your employee rights are put up against the seemingly unlimited resources of an organisation it can be very intimidating.
