What You Need To Know about Isle of Man Employment Law
Regulations and laws concerning employment matters can be complex and confusing, and often it is not immediately clear if the law has been broken.
Health And Safety
Employers must respect the rights of their employees and communicate these effectively throughout the organisation. They should provide a safe working environment and make certain that all health and safety regulations are adhered to.
Human Resources (HR)
Whether the company has an HR department or not, your employer must legally provide you with pay slips and ensure that your wages are paid on the agreed date.
Employers should give fair warning about any changes that may take place, especially if it concerns contracts, pay and working conditions. In some situations, you may disagree with changes that your employer wants to implement. Our team know the ins and outs of employment law and can assist you to identify if the changes will impact your employment rights.
Pregnant women and new parents are entitled to time off after the birth of their child. Each organisation differs, but in some instances, when employees have worked at the company for a number of years, they’re eligible for maternity pay.
