Your rights at work

There are minimum legal requirements for your rights at work that we think everyone should understand. In many cases, your employment contract will improve on these, but we think it’s worth taking a few minutes to learn about your rights when it comes to:

  • Your employment contract
  • Pay and pensions
  • Discrimination and detriment
  • Family rights
  • Part-time and flexible working
  • Health and safety
  • Trade union rights
  • Time off
  • Dismissal and redundancy
  • What happens if your job is contracted out
  • What happens if your company shuts down

Read our ‘Rights at Work 2018-19’ guide, or download and print a copy of your own.

Keep in touch with your branch

Branches are the key unit of organisation for our members. Most are employer-based, ie members of a branch all work for the same employer even if they're scattered across the UK in different locations. Others operate across a number of employers in the same industry.

Once you're logged into the website, you can find your local branch details and contacts on your union contacts page.
