INCONSISTENT WORKING HOURS

Unread post by mstanduhar » 15 Mar 2018, 15:12

My son works for a company in Benrose. Since he started there his working hours has changed 3 times and at inconvenient times, from 3h00 in the morning to 3h00 in the after noon. He has to rely on public transport from Edenvale to Benrose which is almost non existent. They also have no say in working overtime and is told that if they don't want to work overtime, they can leave.
He was never given an employment contract.
I do not see this as being part of the basic conditions of employment. Who could he consult to have the problem resolved without loosing his work. His direct superior is not very accommodating.

He could contact the Department of Labour and anonymously lodge a complaint. The Department will despatch a labour inspector to investigate the working conditions at the company.
