Sunday working: Deal with a shop or betting worker's notice to opt out of Sunday working
When to use this Sunday working workflow
Use this Sunday working workflow when you receive notice from a "non-protected" shop or betting worker that they wish to opt out of Sunday working.
Shop or betting workers who, under their employment contract, are, or may be, required to work on Sundays have the right to opt out of Sunday working by giving notice that they object to it (so long as they are not employed to work on Sundays only).
The workflow should not be used for "protected" workers, who do not need to opt out of Sunday working by giving notice as they cannot be required to work on Sundays.
- Check that the notice of objection is in the required format
- Check whether or not you provided a statement setting out the employee's right to opt out of Sunday working
