I began working for a small business in December and found out I was pregnant in January. My employer was fine about my maternity leave, until I brought up holiday pay. He said he would make me redundant "because you are going on maternity leave." He said I have no legal rights as I have not worked there for a year. Is that so?
When I returned to work after my second child I was offered a job that meant a different shift pattern and childcare problems. Then I tore a ligament at work and had to have time off. My boss told me I was being removed from my position because of my sickness and would have to reapply for family friendly hours. Can he do this?
I work as a school dinner lady, but have had time off for health problems both for myself and my eight-year-old son who had emergency surgery. I was told that this was not acceptable and I should get someone else to look after him while he recovers. I walked out, saying I would resign. Do I have a case for constructive dismissal?
I finished my maternity leave in April and asked about my holiday for last year [my leave runs from April to April]. I was told I had lost my holiday entitlement. Nobody said anything before I went on maternity leave and I didn’t know I would get holiday entitlement. What can I do?
I work from home, online, as a bingo chat room host. We work 6 days per week, on average 40 hours. We get 28 days holiday per year, but we don’t get bank holiday except Xmas Day/time in lieu. We often have shifts finishing at 3am, followed by a 10am shift the same day or even at 7am! Is this legal?
