-Could you explain your situation a little more?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I am a part time kitchen worker in a local pub/ restaurant in Swansea and I have been told that if I do not work Christmas day I will lose my job. I have only been given 1 weeks notice of this and I have made arrangements for the day.

Hello, my colleague has asked me to assist with your query as it is more my area of law. Please confirm how long you have worked there for and also what does your contract say about your working days?
