Part-Time Workers

Part-time workers have the right not to be treated less favourably than comparable full-timers. This means they should:

  • receive the same rates of pay
  • not be excluded from training simply because they work part-time
  • receive a pro rata holiday entitlement to comparable full-timers
  • have any career break schemes, contractual maternity leave and parental leave made available to them in the same way as for full-time workers, and
  • not be treated less favourably when workers are selected for redundancy.

Telephone Enquiry Point

The Agency’s Enquiry Point is available to employers, employees, trade unions and others. Enquiry Point advisors provide information and advice on a wide range of employment matters. The Enquiry Point is also an important contact point for identifying circumstances, or clients, who would benefit from being referred to other Agency services.

The Enquiry Point provides clear, confidential, independent and impartial advice to assist the caller in resolving issues in the workplace.

While the advisors cannot provide a legal opinion they can help callers gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities as well as identifying possible options to help resolve their issues.
