Hi my wife was called into a supervision meeting today. She was told that she was having her flexible working hours reviewed. From today, she would be given 12 weeks notice to lose the night shift she does. She has been told, that it does not meet the needs of the service anymore. My wife has worked 2 days and a night shift for approx. 7 years now. She has been constantly told that the trust was not happy with her working the night shift. She is a band 6 nurse, and has been told she needs to work more days. Are they allowed to do this. We have 3 children under the age of 12 and I thought that under custom and practice laws, this was now her contracted hours, and could only be changed, by consultation?!
My employer has declined my request for flexible working and I would like to appeal. Before lodging an appeal, I wished to take union advice, but my union caseworker fell ill and there was a delay until someone else could be found to take on my file and provide advice. Unfortunately, by this point, the 14-day period in which appeals must be made had elapsed (it is day 15). Can I claim that I am entitled to an extension on the grounds that employees should receive proper legal/union support? I can't find anything legal about this on the internet. Any advice appreciated!
