in Coronavirus Support and Help
4 replies 91 views
Hello, I hope you can help me. The company I work for decided to reduce the store's opening hours and the shift I have worked for the past 10 years is no longer available. I am classed as a key worker and my employer wants me to work different hours on a different location. I am unable to work the hours I have been asked because of childcare. I have a 2 year old son, not yet in nursery or childminder. Am I elegible for the furlough scheme? Can the employer force me to work different hours on short notice using the pandemic as a reason? If not elegible for furlough am I entitled to redudancy pay? Thanking you all in advance for the advice.
