    Default Permenent part time question

    I've just signed up to do a apprenticeship I am meant to do 21.5 hours a week. Friday I get a text message off my boss telling me they are closed Saturday so the last who works Saturday now needs to work Monday so I'm not needed.

    Monday I work 8.5 hours the other days are 4.5 I only work 4 days a week so this week I'll do 13.5 hours.

    A friend told me that my boss should still have to pay me as I have to do 21.5 hours a week, does anyone know if this is true?

    Also since I'm permenent part time is she allowed to just cut my shifts?

    The only reason I agreed to do a apprenticeship and take a pay cut was because I though it would make my job/hours secure!

    If you are contracted to do 21.5 hours then you need to get paid for that amount. Well at least that is how it works for my employees. The only time they don't get paid that is if they have a sick day and fail to provide a doc cert then they get unpaid sick leave (they are allowed 2 days a year with no cert and still get paid). I am obligated to pay everyone their contract hours every week. You should definately ask your boss about getting paid for that shift. Good luck!
