TUC Advice for Economic Downturn
15 January 2009
The Trades Union Congress (TUC) has released two new
publications offering advice for workers during the economic downturn.
The first guide, 'Facing Redundancy', is part
of the 'Know Your Rights' series, designed to help workers to understand where they stand
in the face of difficult economic circumstances and the potential consequences.
The second guide, 'Coping with the Economic Downturn',
compiled with help from the Citizens Advice Bureau, contains practical information, advice
and pointers to further resources on issues like redundancy, employer rights, how to make
sure the right benefits are being claimed, consumer advice, dealing with debt and support
for finding a new job and planning a new career path.
I hope these publications are useful for anyone having
difficulties as part of the ongoing economic problems.
