Hi all, Situation at work as follows: Contract start time is 08:30, contract states we must be ready to work at this time. Work are now suggesting that those of us who are clocking in at say 08:26/8:27 aren’t being ready for work by 08:30, despite it being a 20 second walk to our desks from where we clock in. Even logging in, opening applications or whatever by 08:30 would be the case most of the time if clocking in at 08:27 unless our PC’s were exceptionally slow at booting up so I don’t really understand why they are now saying this. Anyway, anyone else experienced something as stupid as this? My take is that as long as I’m at my desk ready to login by 08:30, I’m not late, although my employer might argue that logging in etc should be on my time, but it doesn’t specifically state that in my contract so I’ll sign in on their time If I wanted too. This is mostly a non-issue for me anyway as I’m usually in the office by 08:15 but it’s irked me none-the-less, especially since we’re on 40 hour contracts with the minimum holiday allowance legally, many people also have to stay on for an extra 15-30 mins to ensure all work has completed, I don't see our employer kicking us out right at 17:30 because that's our contracted finish time. Just seems a very un-needed statement from my employer.
