A supermarket worker who was sacked in 1999 for refusing to work on Sundays has been awarded nearly £14,000 plus costs in a landmark case against Safeway, which is predicted to have a massive knock-on effect for other UK retailers. Safeway, which has not yet said whether it will appeal the decision, sacked Paul Charnetski after he refused to have his contract hours at the store reduced from 30 to 20 a week in order to avoid working on Sundays.
