Workers' rights in the Quran:

Verse 26 of Surah Al-Qasas notes to  the working contract between Moses and  Jethro (Shu‘ayb)

  قَالَ إِنِّي أُرِيدُ أَنْ أُنكِحَكَ إِحْدَى ابْنَتَيَّ هَاتَيْنِ عَلَىٰ أَن تَأْجُرَنِي ثَمَانِيَ حِجَجٍ ۖ فَإِنْ أَتْمَمْتَ عَشْرًا فَمِنْ عِندِكَ ۖ وَمَا أُرِيدُ أَنْ أَشُقَّ عَلَيْكَ ۚ سَتَجِدُنِي إِن شَاءَ اللَّـهُ مِنَ الصَّالِحِينَ(Al-Qasas)

"He said, ‘Indeed I desire to marry you to one of these two daughters of mine, on condition that you hire yourself to me for eight years. And if you complete ten, that will be up to you, and I do not want to be hard on you. God willing, you will find me to a righteous person."

Here Moses is worker  and Jethro is employer ,there is some points here:

 1. employer should deal with worker fairly and giving work  more than ability of worker is immoral action as Jethro said:" I do not want to be hard with on you"

2. If an employer oppress to the worker is not considered  as  righteous.

3. Workers should have" freedom of choice", to feel independence and  freedom and be different  with   slaves .
