This is a little random, but the folks here have been helpful in the past with non 'tech' problems so thought I'd see if anybody here has any info that would be useful for me. My partner works on a part time contract of 20hrs a week which is split over 3 days (Mon 8hrs, Weds 6hrs and Fri 6hrs). She has a holiday/leave allowance that is used hourly, so if she wants a day off she has to book 6 or 8 hours off. We have 2 kids, one at school the other at nursery. Since May my partner has used 1hr of leave every Monday to pick the littlest one up from nursery, she is entitled to enough leave that this is possible throughout the entire year. The company she now works for are saying that she can no longer have this 1hr off as she isn't fulfilling her contracted hours, which technically she isn't but as she is using time from her leave allowance (which she is entitled to use on an hourly basis, and there is no wording in the contract that states she can't book the time as she has been) I don't see how this should matter. I've googled about but can't seem to find anything useful, so if anybody has anything useful to add it would be helpful, and before anybody pipes up saying just pick the boy up an hour later, that's exactly what we'll do if we have to it just means that he has to have his dinner at nursery instead of with us.
