job rights

job rights

the rights which employees may claim as theirs by virtue of performing a certain JOB. These may be an amalgam of their work conditions as laid down in a CONTRACT OF EMPLOYMENT: statutory rights, customary duties and benefits associated with a particular job. A good example of job rights is that of the (now abolished) Dock Labour Scheme: registered dockers were paid a wage even when there was no work available. Assertion of job rights is often a method of defence when managers seek to reorganize some aspect of work and employment.
