Right, time to get serious. Every now and then, the government makes some pretty big changes to employment law that can impact your job, your industry, or the country as a whole; so we’d say it was a rather good idea to stay on the ball.
Here at Office Angels, we’re experts when it comes to finding you the very best office jobs out there, but that’s not where our talents end. Our consultants live and breathe recruitment; we’re passionate about what’s happening in our industry and in the sectors you might find yourself working in. And that’s great news for you, because we use that knowledge to bring you the very latest legislative developments, hot off the press.
If you’re working as an office temp, you’ll want to read all about the new Agency Workers Regulations that have been put in place to give you a much fairer deal in terms of pay, benefits, and access to permanent office jobs. If you’re thinking about starting a family -- or you’re already expecting (and if so, congratulations) -- you should really get clued up on the changes to maternity and paternity rights.
Or if you feel like you, or any of your colleagues, are being discriminated against because of age, ethnicity or personal relationships, get the facts about your rights with the 2010 Equality Act.
And we know that retirement may seem like a long way off, but have you heard about the abolishment of the default retirement age? Well, you have now.
Employment law might not feel like a particularly fun-filled subject, but it’s really important when it comes to your career. And if there’s anything that you don’t understand or want more detail around, get in touch with one of our informed consultants today. We’re always more than happy to help.
