Uncertain Futures: Know your employment Rights

Finding work at 50: Hear from organisations offering specialised support for 50+ job seekers and those considering self-employment.

Uncertain Futures is a participatory artwork that seeks to highlight issues around paid and unpaid work for women over 50, focusing on gender, age, race, disability and class.

The project brings to the fore one of the most invisible contributors to the paid and unpaid workforce in the UK. It highlights the inequalities and discrimination women over 50 face regarding access to work, within work and when leaving work in relation to gender, age, race, disability, class and the impact of Covid19.

Employment & Skills Support Sessions

A series of employment focused sessions have been planned to provide women over 50 years old from across Manchester with support while in work or when looking for work. The sessions  will run from October 2021 to May 2022 and will be held either online or at the Gallery.

Session 3: Know your employment Rights 

After decades of work, much of it fitting around caring responsibilities, many older women workers find themselves suffering from work related and age related mental and physical ill health.  In addition, they are challenged by criticisms about their work and their confidence and jobs are threatened.  This interactive online session hosted by GM Hazards will provide information about the law and older workers, look at strategies and support and practical solutions. 

Log in to the webinar to hear from organisations offering specialised support for 50+ job seekers and those considering self-employment.

Zoom login details to online sessions will be emailed once you have booked a place.
