Save event

'Know Your Rights in the Workplace' is an afternoon of speakers and workshops for University of Plymouth students and recent graduates. The event gives you the chance to learn about your rights and responsibilities in the workplace and what you can do should you feel these are not being considered. 

This is a great chance for you to find out about what rights are and where they come from. We will look at some of the key principles around rights in the workplace and you will have the chance to ask those in the know any questions that you have so that you are as prepared as possible before going into the workplace.

Visit the Eventbrite webpage for further details about the workshops and to register your place.

We look forward to welcoming you to this event, delivered by the Careers & Employability Service and University of Plymouth Students' Union. If you have any questions, please email

Attending this event contributes four hours towards the Plymouth Award.
