EDIT: I think wreckers neat phrase has it about standing up to employers
Employers will take the piss if they can get away with it and flexibility is one direction - try and get paid for not working if you think this is not the case or start coming in late and leaving early if you want to see what they think of "flexibility" and your contractual terms
but i could make a racial harassment claim if i really wanted
You sure she doesn't have a point? Making false harassment claims could get you sacked ultra-quick with no recourse to a tribunal.
you do realise that partially quoting someone allows you to distort what they said?
no but i could make a racial harassment claim if i really wanted...but i wont as i dont think her treatment is based on race
It was a response ato jokey sexual harassment point which surely you realised
It is a couple of hours, get over it.
Given to everyone but you
Perhaps he should take a three hour lunch and use that reply to the employer...it would be ok to do this ?
Being flexible has to work BOTH ways.
So they will also pay him for not working?
The hours he has worked have changed in terms of start and end not the total. The contract has not been changed and everyone else got it except the poster.
Flexibility is good from both parties but the contract exist for a reason and they are inflexible about paying you for not working so why should you [ and in this case only this employee as all the others got paid] get paid less?
As your Manager / Boss the claiming the 2 hours thing would have pissed me off too.
What adhering to the contract would piss you off as a boss...best rewrite the contract as I would refuse to do overtime [any work in fact] if you did not pay me
Al you lot saying this would it be taking the piss to take a three hour lunch break and still get paid ?Would you accuse the employer of inflexibility if they objected and suggest they were the ones with the problem ?
Sometimes you need to look at yourself
Indeed YOU do
