Hello

I've a question for you business owners who do, or have employed an apprentice.

My Stepson is 19, currently working as an apprentice plumber, a few times lately his boss has told him to take a week off unpaid as he does not have much work on, can he do this?

Many thanks

Michelle

I am assuming (which is naughty I know) that he is also going to college one day a week? If so, I would contact the college and speak to the Apprentice liaison officer to see what the rules and regs are. It does seems a bit 'off' to me. Does the employer also then not pay your step-son? Hmm. Seems more like cheap labour to me, rather than an apprenticeship....
