Hospital planned operation paid ?
« on: 28-11-17, 09:53PM »
The policy says appointments paid but the section on page 23 doesn't say that for a planned operation, can anyone clarify ?

I believe a planned op is treated on the most part as normal sick except it should be excluded from %

Typical of Tesco managers to be ignorant of policy and thinking they can just decide themselves.  Too arrogant to admit they don't know and too lazy to check.

Ignorant maybe, but does anyone know whether it's payable or not for a planned operation?

Yes planned ops are paid from day one your P.M. has a form to fill in so you get payed but I don't know what it's called but I think you need to have not used all your sick pay to get it from day one

Yes operations  are paid from your sick pay and the three day wait is waived.
It's all on page 23 of the policy, the entire absence is excluded from your percentage and the three day wait is waived, as long as you follow your doctor's orders and don't harm yourself further.
They made the new policy idiot proof and yet they still find a way to screw it up.

If you're subject to 3 days waiting these should be reinstated for emergency or planned operations.

That means you should be paid, any rep should be able to guide you through the process.

I appreciate all the replies and it seems reassuring if it is paid, but can anyone quote where the policy actually says this, it does say hospital appointments paid under one heading but under another for planned ops it doesnt

Absences linked and prior to a planned (or emergency)
operation, the operation itself and any rehabilitation
period should be excluded from the review level and no
formal action taken, as long as you do everything you can
to prevent the condition getting worse and aid your own
recovery after the operation. For example, we would
expect you to follow any medical advice and rehabilitation
appointments or guidance. If you’re subject to waiting
days these should be re-instated for any emergency or
planned operations.

Hello.
My partner has a planned operation coming up, so they will be off.
I will also need to be off to look after our children.
What will this be classed as??

My partner also works at Tosco.
With no power comes no responsibility.

If you need time off for child care issues it can only be domestic. As such you have the option to take as holiday, unpaid or time back. If you take as time back it is to be agreed with your manager, at a time when it suits both you and the business.

Just  quick FYI,

Anyone having a tooth out at the dentists is entitled to it being paid as well, its now classed as a planned operation and is treated the same as a hospital one.

You can even have a week off and they dont include it in your absence....

I did it a while ago I did have to educate the managers on the new policy before they believed me and I even got called a liar but hey its in company policy......
