Just after a bit of feedback please.

 

I work nights 4 nights on 4 nights off, the company requires me to attend a 3 day First Aid course, I have no problem with this but these would be on my rest days which are sacred to me due to family ill health at the moment.

 

I work 12 hour shifts on nights but the course is daytime as already stated, I would be attending the course on 3 days that I would be on nights, however, I would start my 4 nights the day previously, the assistant manager has suggested that I come off nights and work 4 12 hour days in order to do the course,

 

I haven't worked days EVER here and have been here for almost 11 years. What I am prepared to do is be removed from nights but not work 4 day shifts which would mean starting at 07:30, leave for the course starting at 9am then returning daily after the course finishes working on till 19:30,

 

would I be right in thinking that I wouldn't have to start the day shift or complete it as the training would be a duty commitment?

 

Sorry its a bit long winded but any advice would be appreciated.

if you do a 12 hour days then they are entitled to 12 hours from you, as a mix of work and training. They seem to be flexing to not having you in on rest days - is that right?


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

I do 12 hour nights but as far as I am aware training is a duty commitment which would mean when the training ends on the day so does your working day?

"Duty commitment" isn't a legal term I'm familiar with - is it a local agreement you have?

will the hours go over the maximum permitted for the week? If so tell your employer you would be willing to do the 3 days but would expect 2 nights off (1 either end) to fit in with WTD You need to ensure that the minimum break between shifts is adhered to or they will have to make a suitable accommodation for this.
