Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
I presume you are an employee rather than self employed?
correct - hi I am Paula can you help?
ok let me get my response ready please
as an employee you would be entitled to holidays by law and you should get the minimum of 28 days a year, if you are a full time worker working 5 days a week. If you are working irregular hours or not throughout the whole year then you would get a pro rata entitlement, based on what you actually work. There is a useful calculator you can use to do this, the link is below
As to accepting the new conditions, you may not have an option. Until you have 2 years service with the employer then you are not protected against unfair dismissal. It means the employer can dismiss you for more or less any reason so what they could do is terminate your current contract ad then issue you with the new one - you wither accept it or have no job.
Thanks Ben that was useful
