Sunday working: Explain right to object to Sunday working to a non-protected shop or betting worker

When to use this workflow

Use this 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.

This workflow is an example of a legally compliant process. Where your organisation's own procedures go beyond the procedure set out in this workflow, you should follow these.
