Customer Question
my employer has changed my...
my employer has changed my leave dates because i am taking paternity leave, i would have been due to be at home for christmas on my rotation but cause i am taking paternity leave they want me to bring my leave forward to add on to my paternity leave. this now makes me fall short of been back in the u.k for xmas, my work rotation is 12 weeks on and 3 weeks off, i will now have to complete extra time to be eligible to be home for xmas, i was unhappy with this decision and i would rather resign than complete 14 weeks, my boss said i have to do the extra time to get xmas or resign, is this grounds for constuctive dismissal?
