The Employment Rights Act was enacted by the UK Parliament in 1996 to consolidate enactments relating to employment rights. The Act entitles the workers a right to see details of their Contract of employment, for example, pay statements etc. Paid time off work for public duties, ante natal care, and training is granted to the workers. Employees have a right to be given a written notice of dismissal and an appropriate notice period. Under the provisions of the Act, any dismissal related to pregnancy, maternity or other forms of parental leave; dismissal related to health and safety or asserting statutory rights and dismissal related to a request for flexible working are considered unfair and any worker dismissed in these circumstances has a right to claim for automatic unfair dismissal. An employee can also claim unlawful detriment under the Act for detriment related to pregnancy, maternity or other forms of parental leave. Any worker who suffers a disadvantage in pay or other contractual term may also claim under the Act for an unlawful deduction of wages.
