Has anyone had any experience with this?
I work for the government and work 2.5 days a week. Wed, Thurs and Fri. Wednesday is a crossover day with my colleague and I only spend 3 hours behind the counter and another 2 hours sitting around doing nothing
I'm technically on Mat leave until October but I have to go back for financial reasons. I will be starting back week after next. I haven't told my boss about this yet, will be ringing her on Monday. She'll be ecstatic as she is using her relief staff for the entire region to fill in for me as they wouldn't let her employ someone to fill my role while I was gone.
What I'm planning on asking is if I can drop the Wednesday until my Mat leave was supposed to end in Oct and only work the Thursday and Friday. The way I see it, she is gaining her relief back for two days and only needs relief on the Wednesday for a few hours. That's gotta be better than nothing right?
I'm really nervous about asking. Do you think this is a reasonable request?
