Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hi. I am training as a nursery assistant and am supposed to work 20 hours per week for the training to be valid. I haev a zero hours contract stating that i am basically entitled to nothing. However, i have given them three weeks notice, that i will be changing my days from Wednesday and Friday to Wednesday and Thursday ,beginning week commencing 15th June. I told them i am taking a second job to help secure a mortage. The boss wants me to honour my shifts, this means that out of eleven booked in June, i won't be working the final three of them. It has to preferable to her despite my valid reason. Surely three weeks notice of my intention, on a contract which gives me nothing is both considerate and respectful? They would have to cover me if i was ill therefore i can't understand why there is such as issue? They have plenty of time, and i am not expecting them to give me anything extra in return, so as not to add pressure on the rota.
Does working on a regular basis mean i am entitled to anything contary to the zero hours contract?
Any advice would be appreciated. My boss tends to shout and make life hell if you go against her, and no doubt this is coming tomorrow. Many Thanks, Jane.
My contract began April last year. However the training began in August. It is was a requirement of the training provider that i should work for 20 hours per week.
The deputy manager has been recorded by my assessor as saying that the hours will be available. However this is not reflected in my contract and my assessor is concerned about this as i am due to complete my training in August.
