Hi are you paid more than the minimum wage?
Hi there is no law that would prevent them from allowing you to do so. The only possibility would be that if as a result of you working an additional unpaid hour you were receiving less than the minimum wage in respect of all of the hours you work. This sounds like an excuse to me. You should raise a grievance about it.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer thank you and all the best.
