Sunday working: Explain right to object to Sunday working to a non-protected shop or betting worker
When to use this Sunday working workflow
Use this Sunday working workflow when a newly recruited shop or betting worker is, or may be, required to work on Sundays, or a previously "protected" or opted-out worker opts in to Sunday working.
Such shop or betting workers must be given a written statement setting out their right to opt out of Sunday working. A failure to provide this in the defined time frame will mean that the employee's notice period to opt out of Sunday working is shortened considerably.
- A non-protected shop/betting worker joins the workforce or a previously protected or opted-out worker opts in to Sunday working
- Provide a statement explaining the employee's right to opt out of Sunday working
Key "What if...?" events
- What if? ... the employee submits a Sunday working opting-out notice before the employer has provided a written notice explaining the opt-out right
