Maternity
« on: 06-03-19, 08:30PM »
Hi. My daughter works at tesco and is currently on maternity leave. She is due to go back in July. She had a meeting at work and has said she wants to drop two of her shifts as won't be able to cope with all the hours when she is back. They have refused this and say she can go onto checkouts on her preferred days but not stay at pfs on her request of dropping the two shifts. She has to do her contracted days in pfs. She is on a flexi contract and has worked there for 3 years. She can't go over to work on checkouts as suffered a major panic attack 2 yrs ago on checkouts, she suffers from anxiety and realy loves working at pfs.
Is there anything she can do to drop her 2 shifts. Going from 25 hours to 17 instead

Is either of them a Sunday, as Sunday can be dropped after giving notice to do so.

Yes the 1 is a Sunday. The other that she wants to drop is a Monday

Hi. You are allowed to opt out of sundays. Just need to fill out the tesco sunday working opt out form. It can be found on the OurTesco website. I have just recently filled the form out and handed it to my manager

Probably at not getting what you want! Think people forget this is a business sometimes 🤔

it also seems that those who have been brainwashed think tescos business needs supercedes UK laws. yes you can drop a Sunday as clearly stipulated here: https://www.gov.uk/sunday-working

Global Moderator Comment Link already given, plus where to get the forms.

They may be more acceptable to her dropping the Monday shift once she opts out of the Sunday, as it may be easier to get someone on contract for those hours. Bear in mind, that when she requests to opt out, she does not have to move department.....if there is the slightest suggestion she does, then bring her union rep into it.

Timely reminder by lucgeo that nobody must suffer detriment if they opt out of working Sunday.

Absolutely the right advice about opting out of working Sunday’s. I would suggest making a flexible working request. The form is on Our Tesco. It does require a bit of thought to complete it but the Line Manager is obliged to consider the request and there is an appeal stage if unsuccessful. Good luck

You need to become a VLH supporter to post, it's a bit expensive mind, all of £2 per annum, the best £2 you'll ever spend  :thumbup:

Anyone know about maternity entailment. I.e if a person was to take 1 year maternity would there job still be there or can management corrupt it in some way that it is not.
