I would recommend that you contact ACAS for advice.

From your post it seems like your employer has already tried to meet you half way. Assuming that the shift pattern you were originally on was known to you when you took the job, they have taken into account your request for your shifts to be changed, resulting in the new shift pattern you have been offered.

What are the shift patterns for other employees doing the same role as you? If they have all been changed from the old to the new then it is more unlikely that you will be able to get yours changed again. If it is just yours that has been changed then the employer can demonstrate that they have tried to accommodate your request. However, you need to take into account that an employer is well within their rights to only make changes which are suitable for the needs of the business.

You can put your request in writing for your shifts to be changed again - there is no harm in that. I would state clearly the reason for this request is due to your children - there is a big emphasis on employer's giving consideration to working parents, as demonstrated by the various new employment laws over the last few years, such as longer maternity leave, right to request flexible working on return to work, paternity leave, etc. But having said that, any employer is within their rights to deny flexible working, shift changes if they can demonstrate that it does not meet the needs of the business.

Most employers are not looking for lawsuits or any other kind of trouble. If you asked for a shift change and got it, your employer most likely did all he could to accommodate you. Your children are not his problem so if you can't work the schedule given, I'm sure he can and will find someone else who can. I understand you want and need time with your family..perhaps another job better suited for you is something you should consider.

read your contract of employment, if non report it, ask for hours to suite your circumstances if they say no, leave

Sounds like you work in the care sector in a domiciliary care environment. Anti social shift patterns are virtually the norm in this sector and unless in the NHS there is unlikely to be a union presence to assist you. This sector seems to be almost a law upon its-self where work hours are concerned which is a main reason why they have such a high staff turnover.

Your employer can change your terms and conditions with 90 days notice, they can't just impose them without giving you this notice. If they told you what days / hours you would be working 90 days ago and you did not contest it then you have no argument for having your hours altered now.

Join a trade union and get advice and representation if you need it. If you had any form of contract with the hours of work defined you may have a case. No trade union, no weight of argument.
