Working for a company on rostered shifts, how much notice should be given of what your next shift is
I have asked my employer for rosters 1 week in advance, and if possible 2 weeks, I had a meeting with them, and it was agreed that rosters would be sent with more notice, it has yet to happen.
Currently getting the roster 11 hrs before shift starts
HiWelcome to JustAnswer. There is no legal requirement which specifies what notice should be given, but the notice should be reasonable and should take into account your personal life and the need to structure your life outside of work. So if the short notice was causing problems with say, child care, or other family obligations, then the short notice would be unfair, and you could say that the resulting stress is causing you to become personally stressed, a health and safety issue. If they continue to give unreasonable notice, then you could claim a personal grievance stating that this is unfair.
