my daughter started work part time 4 months ago for a well known cinema, she is also attending her 2nd year at university.

she was able to cover more hours over the summer as university was closed, she has requested a change of hours of employment due to her study schedule and out of 7 days will be only available to work 4.

Her employer has written to refuse her request even though she is only contracted part time, the last part of the letter is quite intimidating stating that any absence will be dealt with in accordance with company,

can they treat her this way?

That depends on how her new schedule would fit in with her original contract. If it is the same number of hours than she was doing before the summer, them her employer can whistle Dixie. If she is going to need some flexibility with that, it gets trickier, as her employer is the one she is going to have to deal with.


Worth remembering that she has little in the way of employment rights at the moment, except in certain cases of discrimination, so she needs to tread carefully. No doubt her employer knows this too, sadly. :-(
