Baroness Thornton voted in the minority (Content).

Amendment 1E

Moved by Lord Davies of Oldham

1E: After Clause 1, insert the following new Clause-

"Employer and employee duty to give notice regarding Sunday working during suspension period

(1) This section applies to any shop worker who is-

(a) employed to work only at an exempted large shop; and

(b) not already subject of an opting-out notice under the Employment Rights Act 1996.

(2) Where an employer wishes a shop worker to whom this section applies to work at an exempted large shop on a Sunday falling within the suspension period, the employer shall, not later than two months before the Sunday in question, give that shop worker a written, signed and dated statement of the request to work on that Sunday.

(3) A shop worker who receives a notice under subsection (2) who wishes to opt out of Sunday working during the suspension period shall, not later than one month after the request in subsection (2) was made, give a written, signed and dated notice that he or she objects to working on that Sunday.

(4) Where a shop worker gives his or her employer a notice under subsection (3), the contract of employment under which he or she was employed immediately before he or she gave that notice becomes unenforceable to the extent that it requires the shop worker to do shop work on Sunday during the suspension period.

(5) An "exempted large shop" is a shop to which paragraph 2(1) of Schedule 1 to the Sunday Trading Act 1994 would apply during the suspension period were it not for the disapplication made by section 1(1).

(6) In this section-

"shop worker" has the same meaning as in the Employment Rights Act 1996; and

"suspension period" has the meaning given in section 1(3)."
