I was working for an agency as a cleaner, and the company has now taken me on. My contract start date was 28th August which is a bank holiday. Our holidays cover for this.
When I checked with HR that I would be covered, they told me that my line manager confirmed my start date as the 29th August. This was not confirmed with me. I will now be out of pocket, as I would have been working if it was a normal day. It feels like they are conning me out of pay or a holiday.
My question is, Can they just changed the date to suit them, as my contract clearly states the 28th.
