Employment law in the UK acts as a control and regulatory function for the relationship between employers, employees and trade unions. Workers in the UK benefit through having a range of enforceable employment rights that set out a minimum standard for working conditions. Employers benefit through having a well-defined and regulated system that is relatively easy to follow. It might sometimes seem that employees benefit most through employment law, and in some ways they do, but having a properly regulated system that all interested parties have to follow ultimately benefits everyone.
While the law governing employment is well defined and set out, there can sometimes be disputes involving employers and employees, which might also involve one or more trade unions.
