Know Your Rights in the Workplace
Wed 3 May 2017, 14:00 – 18:00 BST
Please note that this event is open to Plymouth University students and recent graduates only.
'Know Your Rights in the Workplace' is an afternoon of speakers and workshops, giving you the chance to learn about your rights and responsibilities in the workplace; and what you can do should you feel these are not being considered.
This is a great chance for you to find out about what rights are and where they come from. We will look at some of the key principles around rights in the workplace and you will have the chance to ask those in the know any questions that you have so that you are as prepared as possible before going into the workplace.
