Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
Please explain the situation in some more detail. What exactly are you being asked to sign and why?
Hello, I was wondering if you have had a chance to consider my query above please? I will need your response before I provide an accurate answer to your situation. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
Without the requested information, I can only provide you with general information, which hopefully will still be useful to you. A contract cannot overrule rights which you get by law. There are some rights which can be overruled or amended, such as you can opt out of the 48 hour weekly working limit, but there are many rights which are rigid and cannot be removed, no matter what the contract states. That would be the case with the majority of employment rights you have under UK law so if the employer is trying to make you give them up, it simply means the contract would not be valid and your rights will still remain.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
Hello, I trust that everything has now been resolved to your satisfaction and your original question has been dealt with. If you have any further queries about it, please do not hesitate to get back to me on here. In the meantime, I wish you all the best.
