Is this against contract of employment? watch

    • Thread Starter

    My new supervisor is increasing my hours to one hour extra on my normal working shift. My contract states my standard working hours then it says that "you may be required to work additional hours to those detailed on the roster when authorised or necessary needs to the business". Does this mean they can permanently change the contract with immediate effect?

    In theory, you have to agree to the extra hour for your contract to officially be changed. However, in practice, a lot of employers have written their contracts in such a way that they can sack you if you refuse to change it. Can you try to talk him out of increasing your hours?
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
