Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today.
Have you been paid for the overtime?
I'm not entirely clear what the issue is, is it that you haven't been paid for working the overtime?
So they will no longer be offering it in the future? Are you asking if they are entitled to remove or reduce the overtime?
please can you tell me what hours you normally work and over what period you have worked them?
have you always worked 37.5 hours despite the fact that your contract states that it is zero hours?
ok thanks, ***** ***** case through custom and practice you can argue that your contract should be deemed to be 37.5 hours per week not zero. They are in breach of contract for failing to give you your hours.
The overtime is not a reason to reduce your hours.
You can raise a formal grievance and start early conciliation with ACAS, you will be able to lodge a claim in the Employment Tribunal if you cannot resolve it through ACAS.
Do you have any further questions please?
no problem, I would be very grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer before leaving the site today. Thank you and all the best.
