Your rights and responsibilities at work

Girl using a drillThere are laws to make sure you are being treated fairly at work

They cover all areas of employment including your safety, pay, hours of work and more. With rights come responsibilities, for example at work you are responsible for your own and other people's safety and helping them feel welcome.

  • Bullying at work – if you think your employer or someone you work with is treating you unfairly, you may be being bullied.

  • Equality – you have the right to be treated fairly and can't be discriminated against because of your age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
    NB All employers must, by law, make 'reasonable adjustments' when recruiting someone with a disability, so that they can work. This will vary depending on the size of the employer – they will be expected to make changes that are sensible for the size of the company.

  • National Minimum Wage – the law on minimum wage covers all employees. There is a rate for most workers, including apprentices.

  • Health and safety at work – employers are responsible for their workforce and visitors' safety. Employees are also responsible for the safety of themselves and other people.

  • Contract of employment – you should get one within eight weeks of starting. Remember in law a contract is made with your employer when you accept a job offer.

  • Payslips – most employees have a right to a payslip from their employer when they get paid. It shows your earnings and anything taken off, such as tax.

  • National Insurance and income tax – NI is used to help pay for some benefits and state pensions. Income Tax is used for all our needs, like schools, roads and hospitals.

As well as working rights, young people have a range of rights and as you get older you become old enough to do all kinds of things like work part-time at 14, join the Armed Forces at 16. Learn to drive at 17 and as an adult at 18 you have the same rights as your parents and carers.
