workingwise.co.uk has updated its employment and careers advice, from negotiating flexible working and rights around redundancy and long-term sickness to interview techniques and explaining a career break.
There has been much focus of late on over 50s leaving the workplace during Covid and on whether some will have to return due to the cost of living crisis. Moreover, the current employment outlook is also very volatile – while it has been all about job vacancies and attracting and retaining workers, could that change with a recession? Meanwhile, employers are having to juggle mounting bills and potentially falling demand. In such an atmosphere, they may seek to take action or make changes to terms and condition without properly considering or understanding employment rights.
workingwise.co.uk, however, has updated its main employment rights and careers advice in the last month and below we outline all the areas covered – from carers rights and how to negotiate flexible working to how to make an age discrimination claim.
We also have a panel of employment lawyers who can answer any specific questions free of charge. All you have to do is email [email protected] with your question and we will outline what your rights and next steps might be or get our experts to provide useful careers advice. In addition, we have a large database of questions and answers relating to employment and careers advice which we can point you to or which you can search on our site.
Here are our main employment rights guides, all updated as of August 2022:
