UK Employment Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today.
On the face of it this is probably unfair rather than illegal. Employment Contracts are subject to individual negotiation so if the employer decided to reduce annual leave for new starters there is little the new starters can do.
The exception to this is if the decision is discriminatory under the Equality Act. This could potentially be the case under Age Discrimination as the new policy is likely to have a worse affect on younger members of the workforce.
If you believe that this is the case then you can raise a grievance and potentially bring a claim.
if you have any further questions please ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
