Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.

    The best for him would be to leave and bring a claim to the WRC.

    tell him to keep notes of his hours worked every day and also copy of any emails about after hours meetings, etc.

    Other thing is that his pay is probably under the minimum wage for the hours actually worked so if that’s the case he should include this in his complaint to the WRC. He has 6 months to raise the claim after the last incident so make sure he lodges the claim within this timeframe.

    Tell him to check his contract to see the hours of work and hourly rate. To keep his payslips and all the notes and documents he can gather to present as proof.

    Hopefully he’ll be able to find a better job soon.

    He can contact the Citizens advice center for further advice.

    100% .... If my son was getting screwed I certainly wouldn't stand idly by and tell him to fight his own battles.
