Workers' Rights

EU laws protect your rights in the workplace, meaning no government can scrap them.

Being in the EU protects your right to paid holiday leave, maximum working hours, equal treatment for men and women, rights for part-time workers, health and safety standards at work, parental leave and protection against discrimination based on sex, race, religion, age, disability and sexual orientation.

If we left the EU, your workers’ rights would be up for debate and vulnerable to being scrapped. There could be years of uncertainty for you and your employers (Source: Trades Union Congress).
