Well I didn't get made redundant, Yeay! But have been demoted, had a drop in pay and it all sucks a bit.
But I have a new contract to sign and I'm not sure about the opting out part of the contract, basically they are saying that I have a 40 hour a week contract but I have to opt out of the working time directive, if I don't then they will reduce my pay...
Is this legal? I always thought the opting out of the working time directive was always supposed to be a separate part of a contract, but perhaps things have changed?
I know its probably a quiet time of the evening for HR peeps but I'd just like to know what my situation is?
