Your Work Rights

Economically active people in the UK can have one of three statuses for tax and employment purposes: employee, worker, or self-employed. Each status comes with different employment rights, and requires distinct strategies to claim them when they have been breached.

We believe that exiting poorly paid, unprotected and insecure work always starts with understanding your employment status. This is why we have designed a step by step guide to help you determine your status, understand your rights and responsibilities, learn how to claim them, and improve your employability.
