Sunday working: Explain right to object to Sunday working to a non-protected shop or betting worker

When to use this Sunday working flowchart

Use this Sunday working flowchart when a newly recruited shop or betting worker is, or may be, required to work on Sundays, or a previously "protected" or opted-out worker opts in to Sunday working.

Such shop or betting workers must be given a written statement setting out their right to opt out of Sunday working. A failure to provide this in the defined time frame will mean that the employee's notice period to opt out of Sunday working is shortened considerably.
