Shift Working / Allowance.
Hi, I have recently gone through a restructure at work which meant I was put at risk of redundancy. I'm now in a new role and no longer at risk. The new role is shifts. I've been told that my current T&C's remain as is. My T&C's clearly say that core hours are 7am until 7 pm. Under shift working it clearly says that hours worked outside of core hours will attract the following premium....then it goes onto to list 1 hour worked outside of core = £, 2 hours worked = £ etc etc.. However, we have been told that there is no shift allowance - we've been told that it is included in our salary?! Simple question...is this correct? I thought that the definition of 'premium' was 'in addition to' ? Any and all help gratefully appreciated. Regards, P.
