Vulnerable workers will be able to seek advice about their workplace rights and report abuses of those rights through a new helpline launched by Business Minister Pat McFadden today.
The new Pay and Work Rights helpline is part of a wider campaign to raise awareness of workplace rights enforced by Government. It provides a unified point of contact for both employers and workers.
The helpline telephone number is 0800 917 2368.
It has been developed in cooperation with employers, trade unions and the different enforcement agencies across Government.
The employment rights in question are:
- National Minimum Wage
- Agricultural Minimum Wage
- Working Time (48 hour average working week)
- Employment agency standards
- Gangmaster licensing
