    Good evening,

    I have just taken a new job and it is not what was advertised or agreed to.

    The job was publicly advertised as working a 4-day-on, 4-day-off rotating roster. It was discussed in the interview, and via email exchange.

    When I arrived, after leaving my previous job, I was told that it is only 3-days-off, not 4 and that I will not receive any extra salary.

    I feel this is grossly unfair, but where do I stand under Employment Law?

    Hi Highlander,

    Can you give me some more details?

    1. was a contract of employment signed? If so, when?
    2. do you know if you're award-covered? If so, which award?

    Potentially a claim here.

    Hi Serge

    I signed a letter of offer mid-December. Unfortunately, it doesn't specify the days worked, just the hours (which are incorrect).

    I don't know what award - it's a transport industry.

    Long distance haulage? Distribution?

    Sounds to me that there was both implied and express terms to the agreement.

    Have you still got the ad for the Job ad?

    Need more info but looks like you might have misrepresentation case here.
