Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
Bank holidays must be included. Agency workers didn't have these entitlements until the EU working time regulations came into effect.

Not everyone gets 5.6 weeks holiday. Sick pay entitlements have to be earned. Different employers have different rules. Some much better than the minimum above.

It's 39 weeks of statutory mat pay. Entitled to have 52 weeks off but the final 13 weeks are unpaid. Statutory mat pay is so poor few can afford to have the full 52. Some Occupational mat pay is, thankfully, better.

14 weeks is undoubtedly shit.

You do get 12 years of NI credits though in the UK so that's something.

But all of this is further proof that the demon EU isn't the puppet master some Brexiteers say it is.
I didn't say the EU was puppet master, I said that the argument that the UK should keep tied to the EU due to Workers or Human rights is laughable. Plus, if you think workers rights in the UK are bad, then check out what they are in Switzerland!
