Employment lawyers advise companies and their employees on a range of people-related issues, covering not only staff, but consultants and agency workers, and members of limited liability partnerships. Employment law is a mixture of common law and domestic and statutory legislation.
Employment law is a topic which will affect most of us at some point in our lives, so it is important to have a good understanding of it. Essentially, employment law is the legal field which covers the relationship between employees and employers, including what your employers can expect from you and ask you to do, and the rights you have at work.
Your rights in the workplace may vary depending on your employment contract and the type of job you have, so it’s important to know which rights apply to you. This helps to ensure that you are not treated unfairly in your job and that you are aware of your legal standing, should you encounter any problems in the workplace.
There are two different types of employee rights – statutory rights, and the rights set out in your contract. Understanding your employment rights, and knowing if they are being breached, is the best way to ensure that you are being treated fairly at work.
Unfortunately, all sorts of issues can arise at work. However, there are a variety of ways to deal with these problems, whether through an informal discussion with your employer, formal procedures put in place by your company, or in extreme circumstances even taking your case to an employment tribunal.
