Just joined and first time posting here - hello all.
I have query relating to bank holidays and part time workers that I'm hoping someone can help?
We are looking to hire a part time worker in a small company.
Working days: 3 days per week. Normal pattern: Mon, Wed and Fri.
The business is closed on bank/ public holidays and all full time workers get this as a paid day off. By virtue of the part time working pattern, this would mean the part time worker wont be working on any of the bank/ public holidays that fall on a Monday or Friday. However, the MD would like the part time worker to come in a different day on the weeks that the bank/ public holidays fall but without extra pay or additional holiday entitlement, i.e. Tue, Wed, Fri.
Can this be facilitated? How would you word the contract surrounding working pattern/ holiday entitlement. Is there an element of discrimination as the full time workers all get paid bank holidays?
The sometimes complex nature surrounding this area has caused brain freeze, any advice would be most appreciated!
Thanks in advance
