My husband works for the NHS and has been told that as from the middle of next month, he has to work one evening a week, in addition to his daytime duties (he is being paid for the extra hours).
Apart from this creating all sorts of headaches for us in practical terms, I wonder if this is acceptable? Surely a change to terms and conditions needs to be discussed and agreed? He’s not in a position to refuse, but can he request a review or limits?
He doesn’t want to create a problem for the department, but I’m concerned that if he doesn’t challenge this now, other changes will be imposed in the future.
