Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If your employer needs and wants you to work a certain shift, they have a right to ask and require it. While I completely understand the issue with your daughter and your schedule being around when you have custody of her, that court order is between you and the other parent. Your employer has nothing to do with the custody agreement and if they need you to work a certain schedule, can require it. Now, what you can do is go back to court and modify the order, around your new work schedule. Ideally, the other parent would work with you and agree to modify it but if they impose and object, you need to go back through the court and advise the Judge of the change, after all this time.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
