TUC guide to ‘Working in the UK’

In January 2015, the TUC launched an online guide called  Working in the UK in 13 languages (Bulgarian, English, French, Hungarian, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian,  Russian, Slovakian and Spanish).

This guide provides essential information on working rights including pay, rest breaks, contracts, dealing with problems at work and how to join a union. New online guides to help combat the exploitation of migrant workers, so that everyone is treated fairly.

Working in the UK provides workers with information and guidance on crucial issues such as pay, employment contracts, working hours, sick pay, and health and safety. It also explains how trade unions help workers deal with mistreatment, such as bogus self-employment or non-payment of the minimum wage, and bargain for better pay and conditions.
