Theresa May vows to improve workers’ rights

Prime minister Theresa May has unveiled plans to extend workers’ rights and protections as part of the Conservative party manifesto.

The manifesto, which is due to be published this week, will include tougher rules to protect employees’ pensions from “unsustainable dividends and takeovers”. It follows the public inquiry into the collapse of BHS and its large pension deficit.

It will also promise employees the right to leave work for training purposes, to care for a family member or in cases of child bereavement, the Financial Times reports.
