My specific concern is firstly are they legally allowed to employ people in this way, the as I am working 39hrs a week and more for them, yet my holiday and redundancy entitlement is only that of a 12 hour contract. Secondly that they have made me a supervisor so I have all they mangerial responsibilty when there is only an assistant manager and she is being paid incentive but I am covering her when she is having days off or on holiday. They asked me not to leave and to wait for assistant manager but nothing ever comes to fruition.
I have been on the 12hr contract since I started working for them whilst soing my GCSE's but was made a Supervisor just over 12months ago and have normally working about 20hrs or more a week.
They've told me they won't make a decision on giving me a 39hr contract until they decide whether the Manager ( who is covering a new store ) will return or stay, but he had promised me Assistant Manager last year and so I had turned down two places at University. I feel as though they are giving me the run around, but don't want to make a hasty decision.
