Rights and responsibilities at work

January 15, 2018

Every business has a responsibility to ensure it follows the relevant rules and regulations. If you are an employer, make sure you do everything you can to get it right. Equally, as an employee, you should also be aware of your own responsibilities, as well what your rights are and what your employer should be doing with regard to, for example, pay, contracts, time off and working hours.


Rights and responsibilities at work – the link to productivity

Having clarity on rights and responsibilities in the workplace and communicating policies effectively can make a real difference to productivity.

What does an organisation where people are clear about their rights and responsibilities look like?

  • There are clear and accessible written statements of rights and responsibilities.
  • All policies and procedures are openly communicated and reflect the culture, values and expectations of the organisation.
  • Employers and employees have access to good quality, straightforward advice and information.
  • Organisations are clear on their written and unwritten expectations and values, particularly relating to behaviours.
