I have a 16hr/week contract with one of my jobs. But I've never worked just 16 hours a week up until now, they've always given me 20-25 hours which is fine, and I've always had to work those hours when asked to. But next week due to a confusion I am only doing 8 hours.
I don't really care, but I always thought that if you had a contract with a place of work, that you had to work that amount of hours unless you were sick/on holiday, and they had to give you those hours. Is this correct, or am I wrong? I'm just curious.
