Can a company take all your holidays away from you? They have put us on 6 on 6 off. Average 42 hours a week. Thet say our holidays are in our 6 off?? Surely this is not right?
We work 12 hours shifts
Over two years. We did 6 on 9 off with a 21 day break in the summer. We are a 5 shift system and they want to get rid of a shift and go to 4. We did 147 shifts per year. Now they say 6/6 rigid, with no holidays.
We keep reiterating that we average 42 hours a week. How can they class our 6 days off as our holiday entitlement.
Furthermore, we cannot find any company in the UK that do this? Surely we are not the first test case in the UK? If this is legal, the implications for industry nationwide is bleak. Thanks
What do you think?
The government website states, that on equal time shift pattern 4/4, 6/6 8/8 etc we are entitled to 19.6 shifts off, rounded up to 20 shift per year.
My company are saying that because I will work half the year ie 182 shifts, My holidays are somewhere in the 182 I am off.
My weekly average is 42 hours over a 17 week period or 12 month period. This surely can't be right???
I used to work 4/4 and 8/8 and got holidays in previous employment.
My company have upped my shifts from 147 to 182.
Put it this way.....Day staff get 25 eight hour days off. Its like saying they have to work every Saturday for a year with no holidays.
There is no company in the UK that do this rota.
