[Name and address of employee]
Dear [insert name of employee],
Statutory notice in relation to Sunday betting work
You have become employed under a contract of employment under which you are or can be required to do Sunday betting work, that is to say, work
• At a track on a Sunday on which your employer is taking bets on the track; or
• In a licensed betting office on a Sunday on which it is open for business.
However, if you wish, you can give a notice as described in the next paragraph, to your employer and you will have the right not to do Sunday betting work once three months have passed from the date on which you gave the notice.
Your notice must:
• Be in writing
• Be signed and dated by you
• Say that you object to doing Sunday betting work
For three months after you give the notice, your employer can still require you to do all the Sunday betting work your contract provides for. After the three month period has ended, you have the right to complain to an Employment Tribunal, if because of your refusal to do Sunday betting work, your employer;
• Dismisses you; or
• Does something else detrimental to you, for example, failing to promote you
Once you have the rights described, you can surrender them only by giving your employer a further notice, signed and dated by you, saying that you wish to do Sunday betting work or that you do not object to doing Sunday betting work and then agreeing with your employer to work on Sundays or a particular Sunday.
