Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Did nights come with a separate premium? Please note this is not always an instant service so I may not be able to reply immediately. Rest assured that I am dealing with your query and will get back to you the same day. Thanks
Thank you. If you had no separate night rate in your contract and were just working on a set rate or salary, then any reduction for going on days should have been negotiated with the employer before the changes were made. Had there been a clear difference between night and day rates in your contract, you would have known of the difference between working the two and could have planned accordingly. However, in your case there was no such difference and you should have not had your pay changed, or at least been told about I advance. The issue now is that if the employer refuses to place you back on the old pay, they can simply state that days are not available on your current salary and you have to reduce your pay for moving on to days.
