Losing Shifts

Losing Shifts

 

Sometimes losing work hours or having shifts reduced can be considered discriminatory. For example: 

  •  If your shifts have been reduced after turning 21 years of age, you may be able to make a complaint of age discrimination.
  • If your shifts have been reduced after becoming pregnant, you may be able to make a complaint of pregnancy discrimination.
  • If your shifts have been reduced because you have made a complaint about discrimination or harassment, either internally or with the Equal Opportunity Commission, this can be considered victimisation.

If you think that your shifts have been cut because of discrimination, sexual harassment or victimisation in your workplace, contact us for advice or to make a complaint.
