    Based on information from 759 job reviews

    Why this matters

    Everyone gets sick sometimes. You should be able to take time off without worrying.

    At a good job you should still get paid if you’re scheduled to work but can’t due to sickness. Your contract should say how many sick days you can take each year.

    This is more than the legal minimum, which says you should only get paid if you are unwell for 4 full days. See Citizens Advice for more details.

  • No unpaid extra work

    How we know this

    27% of people report that they do extra work that they don’t get paid for

    Based on information from 771 job reviews

    21% of people report they worry about getting enough hours

    Based on information from 868 job reviews

    Why this matters

    This makes it easier to plan your finances, because you know how much you’ll be earning.
