Customer Question

I have a cancer diagnosis and my granddaughter has cancer too. on my return to work my employers have changed the job I was doing to more duties and different hours this will mean I will be restricted from visiting my granddaughter in hospital and the extra duties will give me more stress at work. they are also making me work my full contracted hours when my doctor has asked for shorter shifts. what are my rights in this situation

Apologies for the slight delay, I experienced some temporary connection issues earlier. Does your contract allow the employer to make these changes? What was their justification for doing this?
