Do you think it's okay to ask for Sundays off although you were hired under the assumption that you could work weekends? I was not born-again three years ago when I was hired at my current job but now I want Sundays off.
Is this because of the sabbath? Isnt the sabbath on a Saturday? No wait, Friday?
I say you can ask, but they have every right to sack you if you refuse to work when they want you to due to breach of contract.
Correct - Friday sunset to Saturday sunset.
No Western company can execute a breach of contract under the premise of religious observance. It is strictly against the US Constitution. I am not certain about other countries.
You can always use religion for your own purpose...But wouldn't it be easier to make your sabbath a day you don't work...Bible never said that SUNDAY is the sabbath...It just says the seventh day....and if you go by the old hebrew calender...that would fall from sunset friday night until sunset saturday night...
EDIT: Seriously though...If you wish sundays off...request the days...be prepared for kickback...Another option is to see if there is someone who you can swap schedules with...
lovely, You can only get a yes or no answer. I think you should ask . Hopefully they will allow you to have at least 2 Sundays off monthy.
Tell them that working on Sundays is against the commandments...and comes with severe punishments.
Pray about it first. Put out a fleece. Listen to what the Lord tells you. Working on Sunday is hard when you would rather be at a church service, but it is doable.
I am looking around for another job that will allow me Sundays off but I think I'm just going to say I can't work on Sundays and see what happens.
Just an update. I got Sundays off... new management. Yaye!
Well done! I think most managers will try and accomodate religious observance- just remember if your boss gets stuck one day it does not hurt to help out occassionally and miss church.

I have sought to avoid topics which are potentially divisive within the Christian community here on HubPages. I prefer to disagree politely on minor issues and leave major issues for interpersonal and group studies.However my Roman Catholic fellow hubber Mike, has been accusing me of slander...

Do we keep the Sabbath on Saturday or Sunday? The commandments tell us to remember it!The commandments tell us to keep the Sabbath Holy. Did we forget the Sabbath and was the Sabbath changed to Sunday?
