Can a part time worker claim South Lanarkshire compensation?
Although full time workers often have a variety of rights, part time and temporary workers are often unsure of whether they benefit from the same employment rights. For example, full time workers may receive sick, holiday pay and bonuses, whereas employers may try to hold these back from employees.
If you work part time and your employer doesn’t afford you the same rights as other workers, you could take action against them. Although some rights, such as holiday entitlement, may be awarded on a pro rata basis, you are still entitled to them.
Similarly, if you suffer an injury at work you could still make a claim against your employer, even if you’re a part time worker. Although you will need to prove that they caused your injury in order to be entitled to receive South Lanarkshire compensation, you are eligible in the same way as a full time worker.
Often, part time workers worry about losing their jobs if they make a claim for South Lanarkshire compensation but you needn’t be too concerned. Your employer won’t be allowed to punish you for making a genuine claim so you should feel free to pursue your South Lanarkshire compensation claim if you feel that your employer is responsible for the harm that you suffered.
If you’re on a relatively low budget, you may be concerned that making a claim will be too costly or that you simply won’t be able to afford the expensive legal costs associated with making a claim. Unfortunately, some personal injury law firms do still charge expensive upfront fees so you’ll want to ensure that you don’t end up spending more than you need to in order to obtain South Lanarkshire compensation.
