Hi Guys ,
Just wondered how I stood legally, my current employer wants to change my contracted hours from 39 hours a week to 35
due to the credit crunch
They wanted me to sign a new contract last friday, but I refused
saying I needed more time to think about it..
I have another meeting this friday to have another 'chance' to sign , after that I get one more chance to sign or basically I am out of work...
I took this job on in december last year for 39 hours a week , after having worked for myself for the last 15 years
last year hit me real bad, (bad payers/lack of substantial work etc,) and as I have kids and the piggy bank was being depleted at a rapid rate of knots I went to work for these 'People'
Anybody know if they can force me to accept there terms..
and yes.. before people shout at me and say its better to have work than not, it makes it all the harder when they are paying me a really poor wage and the manager... seriously has not got a clue.. so this makes it really even harder to work with them..
