Hello, I am not sure if you saw my query above: How long have you worked there for?
Without the requested information, I can only provide you with the following general response, which will hopefully still answer your query.
If you are strictly contracted to 40 hours only then that is what the employer should stick to and you can refuse to work extra than that. However, you should also check the contract to see if it states anything about the employer being able to ask you to work additional hours if needed. If such a clause exists then they can ask you to work overtime and you cannot unreasonably refuse that.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
