    Employment rights are fundamental to the notion of ‘decent’ or ‘good’ work. But to what extent do employability professionals embed these ideas in their practice? In this article, we introduce the concepts of legal and psycho-social literacy, which could empower employability professionals to 1) develop and use their knowledge of good work and employment rights 2) help their clients to evaluate and recognise good work and what this means for them, and 3) help educate employers about how to create sustainable and inclusive work for their employees.
