whats the deal with them getting back to you within 7 days? is them verbally saying you can't have them enough? or does it have to be in writing on the slip?

If they don't get back to you in writing ignore what they tell you verbally, take the holiday and if they moan about why you were off say no one got back to you so you presumed it was ok.  :-X ;D

If you gave a holiday form in then they should refuse it on that form
Will it stand though?

Anybody know the union's take on this?

Tesco's policy is very clear you hand a form in they have 7 days to say yes or no and original form should be returned to you. The union agreed that policy with Tesco so therefore will back you in your fight well a decent rep will.

policy is hand in holiday form with date you handed it to your manager you both sign you keep a copy, if manager does not get back within 7 days it is taken as holidays are granted, if you are told they have no holiday forms just write it in duplicate and do as above make sure manager signs and dates it, if the manager refuses to accept this get a colleague or rep you trust to witness the manager refusing this will then kick in your 7 days if the manager comes back within the 7 days and refuses your request they have to take you to the holiday book to book alternative dates that are available you only book contracted days off, but if these days are on your availability form as long as you give enough notice nothing they can do remember days you agree can be treated as contracted shifts apart been from used on sya or whatever its called now, it has to be the form you handed in given back to you to count as a refusal or acceptance.

Avoid the hassle of having to ask for a holiday form and then waiting for a few weeks for the manager to remember to bring it at the same time as you are on shift.

When you do actually get a blank holiday form, make several photocopies of it so then you always have one available.
Photocopy a few more now and again, so you never run out of holiday forms.

If you need time off go sick until you have used up your full entitlement it saves you the hassle of holiday request not be authorised.

But the manager is saying because they told me verbally i couldn't have it then that is enough

But it HAS to be a form returned no other way of getting back to me?

@Weed

also ensure that (when you are better) you use up any accrued holiday entitlement whilst you were off sick. And if you happen to be sick during your booked holidays, contact your manager and let them know (as soon as you are aware of your sickness) that you would like to re-book your holidays that were missed due to illness. And claim sick pay for the days that you were off (first 3 days excepted, if they do not apply to you). :thumbup:

@Scruff

Put in a grievance against the manager for not following company policy. They will then have to give you a written response to the grievance, including why they refused your request.

then take it from there, whether you feel that the refusal is justified or not :thumbup:
