Good Morning

Once there is an agreement to reduce the hours unless there is a new agreement to increase them again your status changes.

There has to be an agreement by both employer and employee to change back.

Even putting in an end date, if it is not agree by the employer there is no change.

What they have told you is correct.

By asking for a reduction and it being agreed to your contract has been changed.

If you wish to have a phone call to discuss this in more detail please elect a call or I can send you a request.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you have found my answer to be helpful, please rate me five stars so I can get paid for my services to you. I am happy for you to ask further questions on anything you wish more detail on.

Let me know if I have answered your question today.

Regards

Leon
