Employee Rights and Benefits


The legal rights and benefits afforded to employees differ widely from country to country and it is imperative that prospective employers in the United Kingdom understand these issues fully.  These matters are, obviously, not only important from a legal perspective but also from a motivational and recruitment perspective.  In a labor market where good employees are hard to find, workplace rights and benefits can be a differentiating factor for potential employees.

This section looks at a wide variety of issues which affect employment in the United Kingdom, such as hours of work, holiday entitlements, maternity and paternity leave and flexible working arrangements.  As with many countries, this is an ever evolving area of legislation in Great Britain and it would be a good idea to review these pages periodically in case anything has changed.

Specialist advice should be obtained before taking, or refraining from taking, action based on the contents of this site which is only intended as a brief note.  If you require specific advice on any aspect of this section or on any other UK employment related matters, please contact David Bickford or another member of the Penningtons Employment Team.
