Women's Rights at Work is a comprehensive guide that begins with the point when a woman finds work right through to the end
when she finishes a job through*BR*dismissal or resignation. Starting from the premise that, while rights at work affect*BR*all workers, there are many issues that affect women workers in very specific ways. Topics covered include unfair dismissal, discrimination, harassment, maternity rights, and health and safety in the workplace. A solicitor specialising in women's *BR*employment rights, Alison Clarke demystifies the subject and provides an up-to-date reference guide to employment law for the non-specialist.
Free from legalistic jargon, this book explains any unfamiliar terms in detail in order to make the law accessible to all women who want to assert their rights in the workplace.*BR**BR*This handbook provides guidance on what to do if your employer:*BR**BR*Asks discriminatory questions at an interview*BR* Changes your contract without consultation*BR* Pays you less than a man doing the same job*BR* Dismisses you because you are pregnant *BR* Discriminates against you because you work part-time*BR*Makes you redundant because you were one of the last to be hired*BR*Refuses to give you a reference
