About Our Site

WorkingRights was formed to offer a unique reference point on understanding your rights as an employer or an employee.

Working Rights was established to provide an easy-to-navigate resource for the complex issues that surround employment.

With topics for both employees and employers, Working Rights offers clear, detailed and accurate information that can be used for common workplace issues and problems.

The site contains carefully researched articles written by experts, covering topics such as discrimination in the workplace, redundancy rights and health and safety advice. This information can be used to gain greater insight into difficult working conditions, or to ensure that your workplace is operating in tune with current regulations.

Many employees find that the advice and information available is either too heavily weighted in favour of the employer, or unrealistic in terms of progressing in your career. Working Rights is accessible and practical, giving real advice from experts who understand what issues employees really face in the work place. Similarly, advice available for employers can be too strict or legally focused. Many responsible employers are keen to provide their employees with fair working rights that they can afford to implement, whilst developing their business and creating profit.

Working Rights is the perfect resource for the company you want to work for and the people you want to employ.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

WorkingRights was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding WorkingRights and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
