"Granted days off in lieu of Saturday work"
We are a furniture manufacturer and have a factory and showrooms. As part of their employment contracts, showroom staff are required to work on Saturdays, from 09h00 - 13h00. Because they work Saturdays, we have recently implemented that they are allowed two days off per month, taken Monday - Friday. These days off are not accumulative and are forfeited if not taken. Their salaries and annual leave allowance remain unchanged.
I have asked them to complete leave forms (for admin/record keeping purposes) for the 2 days per month and to record it under "other" leave with the words "granted day off for Saturday work" in the description. Is this correct?
The one lady at our showroom is refusing to complete a leave form.
