Many important rights for UK workers were introduced as a result of European Union (EU) legislation. These rights remain protected by EU laws. The EU has also instituted a cap on bankers’ bonuses, while commentators and campaigners have proposed further action at EU level to contain economic inequality. This report analyses polling conducted in order to answer the following questions:

  • Does the UK public understand the role of the European Union in guaranteeing certain key rights at work?
  • Is there public support for these rights, and the role of the EU in setting them (as opposed to national governments)?
  • Is there public support for further EU measures to tackle inequality more generally?
