Post subject: Going back to work advice
I have a 9 week old daughter and will be going back to work at the end of September. The girl that I work with has just been told that she needs to sign a new contract at work. The new contract will mean she recieves less money per hour and it also changes her working hours to include every other weekend whereas before we only worked during the week. She has refused to sign this contract and has been told that if she doesn't sign it they will terminate her contract. As me and her have identical contracts because we do exactly the same job it is obvious that when I return back to work I will be asked to sign a new contract too. Legally i'm pretty sure I don't have to but wondered if anyone else has had this problem and could they offer me any advice?

I've read some stuff about this on the government websites and there are different rules for employers for after ordinary mat leave and additional mat leave. I have phoned ACAS before for advice on work before and they were amazing and so helpful.
