I don't mean to sound rude, so please don't take it that way, but there's loving work and there's being taken for a mug. I know it's his decision that he wishes to work his holidays but the employer has a duty of care and well being for staff. What kind of employer thinks this is acceptable? He would get paid for his holidays so he should take them. His contract would say how many days he's entitled to and how he should take them. My contract says I can carry over some days to a certain point of the following year, my husband's says he's to use them up by the end of the year or lose them. I hope he is getting paid in lieu

Im pretty sure that the boss is breaking the law on the annual leave, Im more shocked at that than the issue of working overtime!
Your husband really needs to get a copy of his contract and read through carefully to see what his entitlements are, from overtime payment, ill health provision, leave and contracted hours.
I would advise speaking to ACAS if he isnt part of a union.
But I would seek all the information before confronting the boss, and would probably wait until I had another job lined up before I did.

Ericsmum, this can happen alot, getting back to the yard, and no overtime. We have decided, to get our holiday out of the way, and then he will look for another one.
So annoying that employers dont recognise a good worker, as I said before, in 10 years he has had about 1 month off, and that was spread over 10 years.
I must admit, I agree with some previous posters that many people have to travel for work and will not be being paid for it. I have travelled at weekends, I have done extremely long working days with the travel, it was the norm and nobody would have dreamt of asking for pay.

But some of the other things you have said are a bit concerning, docking one hours pay because of a dental appointment is petty. And I am incredulous at the holiday situation, this is surely illegal if he has been prevented from taking his holidays.

As an aside, my definition of a good worker would not include someone who has only had one month of in ten years (not saying this is the definition of a bad worker, but there is nothing good about it).

Rule to work.

Any hours worked over your contracted hours is paid overtime.

If no overtime payment is to be made, work them hours only.

Your husband needs to sort out what he's entitled to: 5.6 weeks off per year minimum. 20 minute break if working over 6 hours, a proper contract. He is employed and not a 'worker' or self employed is he? Googling will give you all the information ready to take to his boss, who, if your husband is an employee, won't have a leg to stand on. Check too, if he's owed back pay for holiday not taken

That is not how the workplace goes for lots of people. Not everybody is paid by the hour, roles are task based and employment contracts require flexibility around stated hours.

Glad to hear it! But whilst not appalling, you seem to think a month off sick is good, I would find it unconcerning but not especially good. I dont think my husband would have taken more than a few days off sick in the last fifteen years. I might be something more like your husband but I would not be thinking of myself as a good employee because of it.

Didn't the Op say he's sixty ? Total of four weeks off in the last ten years is definitely below average , it's two days off sick a year ! Especially as people get older and tend to have the various complaints and health issues an aging body brings it's pretty good.
