Stock take
« on: 06-01-20, 06:47AM »
Hi all, was wondering if anyone knows how much notice management has to give staff to come in early when stock take is due. Some say 24 hrs and some say one week. Thanks in advance.

Depends what type of contact you're on. If you're a flexi and the hours are in your availability window, 24 hours notice is correct. Otherwise general courtesy should be there and the question should be asked but as a colleague you should really understand that changes will be needed at MST as all routines will change

From what I recall, stock take was started from as early as 4am on occasions. If these hours are in your availability window, then you should still be asked with a decent amount of notice, especially as the hours are deemed unsociable and public transportation could be problematic.

You don't have to come in early if public transport is unavailable, it's not in your availability window or contracted hours. Changes are not needed by you, the stock take goes on until it's finished, which is around mid to late morning. I NEVER went in early for stocktake, and there was plenty of counts and recounts to do when I go there.

Live for today. Learn from yesterday.

If you are not on a flexi contract they can ask you but not compel you to start early. If you dont want to do it dont.

Even on a Flexi contract there should be a minimum of 1 week notice. The 24 hour notice is for unusual circumstances i.e. cover sickness. It's not for routine, predictable things like stock take.

If your Flexi and it's in your availability then 1 week. Otherwise voluntary to change.

Could it be that someone who was coming in early for stock take has gone sick.
If you are taking part in stock take you have to do the online training.
