New microsite to help vulnerable workers

The TUC has launched a new microsite to help people find out more about their basic rights at work.


Basic Rights @ Work will introduce vulnerable workers - people who have little knowledge of their employment rights, who find it hard to access advice and who do not have the ability to protect themselves against abuses of their rights - to information about employment rights in the UK and how to enforce these rights through statutory enforcement bodies.


TUC Deputy General Secretary, Frances O'Grady, said:


'Vulnerable workers - especially in low-paid sectors, such as care, cleaning, hospitality, security and construction - can find themselves working excessively long hours, sometimes with no contract of employment. Their work can be insecure and they are regularly paid below the minimum wage.”


The site, put together by the TUC's Union Modernisation Fund (UMF), has details of the employment rights that apply to different categories of workers, information about basic rights - from the National Minimum Wage, to working time and annual leave entitlements - and advice on how to enforce rights at work.
