HiI work as telesales for a print company.

 

We are paid min wage and have rolled up holiday pay, they will not ppay sick pay and shut early dur to computer problems or phone problems and do not pay us for this.

 

Our contract reads hours 'hourly and variable' so when I have questioned this thats how they get round it.

 

My question today is that there is no HSE poster displayed, or fire signs. I have been the nearly 2 years and there has never been a fire drill or alsrms test, There is no company first aider.

 

We are on the phones all day and they only have 3 headsets for 12 staff as they have broken over the years and they refuse to replace them due to cost. I get neck and shoulder pains if I dont have one too often.

 

Also we 'hot desk' twice daily which means no chairs or monitors are set up correctly.Is there anything I can do about these situations, I have tried to raise them in the past but they just think Im trying to cause trouble and will not think twice about cutting my shifts to force me out. (yheyve done this to other staff) but I need this job untill I can find a better one.

 

Thanks for your help in advance.Nutz

You can but as you say your employer will think you are making trouble, do you really want to cause problems just before Christmas? I would just look for another job, there are always vacancies for experienced good telesales staff .

An anonymous 'enquiry' to the local Environmental Health department might be interesting

Hi

 

Thanks Stu, interesting reading. and as I suffer with bad back and shoulders I will be taking longer to properly adjust my chair before starting each shift.

 

Sidewinder, I think you may be right and will make an 'enquiry' on Monday.

 

Thanks guys for your input.
