As an employee what are my statutory rights?


As an employee, you have various statutory rights including:

  • Statutory Sick Pay
  • Statutory maternity, paternity, adoption and shared parental leave and pay
  • Minimum notice periods if their employment will be ending, e.g. if an employer is dismissing them
  • Protection against unfair dismissal
  • The right to request flexible working
  • Time off for emergencies
  • Statutory Redundancy Pay

Some of these rights require a minimum length of continuous employment before an employee qualifies for them.
