Hello

 

 

Does your contract state how much notice you should be given for rota changes?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 6 years ago.
There is no legal minimum notice period to issue or change rotas in the workplace. This mainly depends on the worker’s contract or any workplace policies that are applicable. Saying that, your employer has an implied duty of trust and confidence so they should provide you with ‘reasonable’ notice. So if you believe that the notice you have been given is too short in the circumstances and unreasonable you can bring that to your employer’s attention and either refuse to do the shift or do it but make it clear that you would expect longer notice in the future.
