Are they allowed to do that?shinji said:Another note though, is when they ask you to stay back during work..
This happened to me once. . i was working a 10 hour shift (woolies; deli) and then they asked me to stay back till 10 because they desperately needed me to. stupid ol' me agreed and i had to open the following morning...
The time between two shifts has to be 10hrs.
Sometimes when we're desperate we get a bit dodgy and do a 9-9.5hr break.
If I was in your position, I'd be like fuck you.. YOU did the rosters wrong, YOU couldnt find another person to fill in the time difference ahead of schedule, YOU should cop it.
Hence, when I refused to do a 5:30am open shift when they asked me only a few hours beforehand [I was out and wont be home till late].. the 2nd in charge got stuck with that shift..
I dont really care. I honestly think that it's better the 2nd in charge got stuck with that shift because it's their mistake and she's paying for it. It teaches them to not make the same mistake again. Besides, I've been copping random weekly 5:30am shifts for the last 2 months before the event.
