Employment in the United Kingdom
Employment in the United Kingdom is conducted by means of the Employment Rights Act (1996). The United Kingdom labor market differs from other European labor markets by relative flexibility.
The richness of case-based law in the employment field, as well as reinforced EU-related law regulation in the employment law area, will mean increasingly close attention to taxation and employment regulation for the companies looking into setting up their operation in the country. Specialist assistance is highly recommended. Legal compliance in the employee-employer relationship is mandatory.
Some of the employee rights are as follows: the right to a written employment contract, the right not to be fired for no reason, the right for redundancy pay, the right to a minimum notice before getting fired, the right to no unsanctioned deductions to the salary.
