Understanding employment law in Blackpool


There are many Blackpool employment law firms that are experienced with the broad range of employment law matters. Your rights under employment law will vary depending upon the type of your employment, for example, under employment law you can have the status of an ‘employee’ or a ‘worker’. If for instance you work in a bed and breakfast business as short-term casual labour in Blackpool, employment law would define you as a worker. 

It is important that you understand your employment status, as this can have an effect on your entitlement to certain benefits and also your rights if you lose your job. For example, workers are still entitled to core employment rights and protections. All workers have the following rights: 

  • The right to the National Minimum Wage
  • The right to working time limits, including rest breaks, paid holiday and limits on night work
  • The right to adoption, maternity and paternity pay (but not leave)
  • The right to Statutory Sick Pay
  • The right to protection under discrimination laws

All employees should be fully aware of not only their rights, but also the action they can take if they think their employer has broken the law. Even if you work casually in Blackpool, employment law will still protect you in many respects. If you think that your current employment status may be unlawful, or your employer isn’t following employment law, contacting a solicitor can help you to clarify your situation. If your employer is found to have broken employment law you may be able to take action that could include making a claim to an employment tribunal.
