A report is calling for mandatory notice periods for shift workers to avoid rotas being changed at the last minute. The study of 2 000 adults by the Living Wage Foundation, suggests that more than 60% of people whose job involves variable hours or shifts, have been given less than a week’s notice of their schedules. While it argues that short notice periods are a problem right across Britain, the practice is less common in Scotland.
