Employment Law / What is the minimum age to be bar staff?
« Last post by Learnist Careers on January 07, 2018, 11:18:58 AM »
You need to be over 18 to sell alcohol.  This is whether you are in a corner shop, a supermarket, a pub or a bar.  Just as if you are working in a supermarket you will need to ask for an older staff member to approve the sale of alcohol, you would need a similar system in a bar.  So you do not have to be over 18 to work in a bar, just to sell the alcohol.  For example a pub could employ you to be a waiter or work behind the scenes until you turn 18, at which point you could legally sell alcohol from behind the bar.

The employer would also need to consider other aspects of your working environment for example working hours and health and safety, particularly while you are under 18 years old, to ensure they are conducting their business within the law.

Yes, you can apply to be bar staff before you are 18.  Depending on your skills and attitude they may even employ you to help behind the scenes, as a waiter, or offer you training in advance of your birthday. Of course the employer will need to work within the law so you will not be able to sell alcohol until you are over 18, and there are other concerns such as health and safety and late working hours that they will need to take into consideration, but if you convey the right working attitude from day one you will be on a better footing to find the job that you want.

Hi Akynos,
I notice that you posted this a long time ago and you have probably found some answers yourself, but I thought I would write my response in case it is helpful for someone else...  I expect the reason you haven't had a response until now is because it's such a big question, and really only you can answer it.

The first task in a career search is identifying your strengths and weaknesses, and what you enjoy and don't enjoy.  You seem to have done this yourself and have put this into the text above.  Based on this and your experience as a Data Analyst perhaps you should continue in Data Science.  It is currently a quickly growing sector and many companies are looking for competent staff to move into management positions.  Alternatively a Graduate Scheme offered by many large companies would be a good start allowing experience in a wide variety of posts to help you recognise what you enjoy doing.  Or perhaps you should consider working for yourself.  If you can create something, perhaps an App, which solves a problem then maybe you can be an entrepreneur.

Always remember that whatever career you jump into, it doesn't have to be what you stick with forever. You may decide that in just a few months or even decades something else appeals.  It won't be the end of the world to change again.
Employment Law / Can employer change my hours?
« Last post by Learnist Careers on January 07, 2018, 10:50:49 AM »
Can your employer change your hours?

If your hours are listed in your contract, and they are the same hours you continue to work then you have the right to refuse to change your working hours, and can take your employer to a tribunal if they continue to disregard your opinion.  This is also true if your hours are not stated in your contract of employment, but have been doing the same hours for a minimum of 3 months and would have no reason to assume your hours would change.

If your employer has requested to change your hours you should initially discuss this with them.  It may be that you can negotiate a higher rate of pay or alternative preferable options such as more flexible working alongside the amended hours.  However be warned, if your employer has a very good case for needing more staff at different hours they may follow the redundancy process and employ other staff members to fulfill the required hours.

You can't work more than 48 hours a week however you can opt out from this limit. If you are under 18 years old then you can't work more than 8 hours or 40 hours per week.

You may have to work more than 48 hours a week on average if you work in a job:
  • where 24-hour staffing is required
  • in the armed forces, emergency services or police
  • in security and surveillance
  • as a domestic servant in a private household
  • as a seafarer, sea-fisherman or worker on vessels on inland waterways
  • where working time is not measured and you’re in control, eg you’re a managing executive with control over your decisions

Employers can’t force employees to take annual leave when they’re eligible for sick leave.

Any statutory holiday entitlement that isn’t used because of illness can be carried over into the next leave year. If an employee is ill just before or during their holiday, they can take it as sick leave instead.

An employee can ask to take their paid holiday for the time they’re off work sick. They might do this if they don’t qualify for sick pay, for example. Any rules relating to sick leave will still apply.
