Hi there, my employer is suggesting they may not allow us to work our normal contracted hours over the Xmas period. I have worked for my employer, a 24/7 call-centre, for 16 years and I was wondering, if they reduce my contracted hours are they obliged to psy for the hours that are cut and, if so, are they also obliged to pay ythe relative bonuses that would apply if I were to work them?

Also, the hours I work are the same shifts each week, would they be within their rights to insist I work different hours to accomodate what they want?

THis is a contractual question. And since we don't know the terms of your contract, not easy to answer. We would need to know what your contract says about your hours of work and when they are worked. But one thing is certain - if your hours are able to be reduced then no you don't get paid for not working.

If you want an accurate assessment of your case and prospects, you should get legal opinion from a lawyer - not a public forum. Anything I tell you is for guidance only, and is based on my experience of the law in the context of what details you provide.

Welcome to The Consumer Action Group.



I am just letting you know that as you haven't had any replies to your post yet, it might be better if you post your message again in an appropriate sub-forum. You will get lots of help there.


Also take some time to read around the forum and get used to the layout. It is a big forum and takes a lot of getting used to.



Once you start to find your way, you will soon realise that it is fairly easy to get round and to get the help you need.


It can be bit confusing at first.

Please be advised that my time will be limited for the next few weeks.Thanks for your understanding.
