I started to see my daughter on Saturdays and told work I may not be able to work Saturdays anymore due to this. My manager said well If you want Saturdays off then you will have to work Fridays and Sundays every week.

 

I dont think this is fair and that I should have to work every Friday and Sunday just to see my daughter.

 

Can I do anything here?

 

Cheers

You could be really 'naughty' and demand the right to be heard regarding working from home (assuming your daughter is under 6 and you have worked there for more than a year).

Seems a fair compromise to me, it's called give and take.

 

No - it depends on what's written down in the employment contract, and whether the terms are lawful or not. Once that has been verified, then we can talk about 'compromise'.

My daughter is 4 and I have been there for 8 months now.

Well there is nothing in my contract to say I have to work every Saturday nor is there anything to say I have to work set days.

If you've only been there 8 months then your position is rather weak.

 

Provided that the employer's request is driven by genuine business need then he has the right to ask you to work when he likes, subject to anything in your employment contract that says otherwise.

 

I believe he cannot force you to work on Sundays, but he can probably make working on Sundays a condition of letting you have Saturday off.

 

To be honest you would be better striking the best deal you can until you've been there at least one year when you will begin to have many more rights - including the right to request flexible working hours.
