  4. Hi, my shift pattern includes shifts which require me to work periods greater than 6 hours. There are no in built breaks within these shifts. I have approached my employer about this issue and their response was that they have a workforce agreement in place and therefore they can exempt section 12 of the WTR under section 23 of the WTR. My guess is that they can also exempt section 12 under section 21 as the job is a special case as described in section 21. What I think they have missed is the effect of section 24 WTR on both sections 21 and 23 and their duties in regard to that;
  5. Hi I'm representing a group of employees at my retail workplace some of which are part time and some are full time. The shifts we do vary between 4 and 12 hours a day. It is an individual business not part of a chain or anything. There is no union or HR department there are just the managers who own the business and about 20 staff who work for them. The problem is that we are not allowed to take any rest breaks even in 12 hour shifts. We have previously been allowed a few minutes to eat a meal at some point during the shift but we have to stay at our workplace and if the phone rings we have to

  7. This is so very wrong - back in 2001 the Labour Government encouraged the purchase of Diesel vehicles, reducing diesel and pumping money into the industry. Now those vehicle owners are being heavily penalised with increased fuel, taxes and now parking charges ! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/news/11007326/Diesel-car-drivers-betrayed-as-EU-cracks-down-on-Britain-over-air-pollution.html https://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/oct/01/uk-government-wrong-to-subsidise-diesel-says-former-minister http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/01/27/new-londo

  9. Just a quick question here. My office closed on XMas eve, and we go back on the 4th like most people. However, due to the work I do, and a very demanding client, I am having to cancel plans and work from home in order to work on a system. I am alone in doing this, while the rest of the office enjoys a nice break. Am I entitled to these days back since I am working them? Or am I just being picky? Thanks
  10. Hi there! My partner has just received a CCJ through the post from an old Halifax account, (about 4 years old). He was always into his overdraft and was always charged penalty charges, so it was impossible for him to ever clear this overdraft. A few years back Halifax changed their terms and conditions and he was £5 over his overdraft. This resulted in him being charged an excessive amount so he closed the account. However, they refused to close it and continued adding penalty charges, but he disputed paying the penalty charges so since then, it h

  12. SSE has become the first of the so-called 'big six' energy firms to confirm it is to raise its prices ahead of the winter months, sparking a bitter backlash among consumer groups and politicians. The company said household gas and electricity tariffs would rise by an average 8.2% from November 15 affecting 4.4 million electricity and 2.9 million gas customers. It is understood several of its competitors also plan to announce increases to bills later on Thursday. SSE, which trades as Southern Electric, Swalec and Scottish Hydro, blamed its decision on rising costs outside its contro

Hi guys, I don't know whether I'm having a off day but I'm trying to understand this rules on the government website without success http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/Employment/Employees/WorkingHoursAndTimeOff/DG_10029451 Basically I'm a shift worker, I work 10am till 10pm Mon to Thurs.
