Minimum employment rights

This section provides an overview of the minimum rights and obligations that apply by law to employers and employees.

Employees can’t be asked to agree to less than the minimum rights.

An employee is anyone who has agreed to be employed, under a contract of service, to work for some form of payment. This can include wages, salary, commission and piece rates.
