Bank Holiday working

It seems to be a problem only for night shift workers, not surprising really considering the companies main priority is pride month.

I knew they would mess this up.  Had 15hrs BH and got paid £50 quid. Same with all the night staff in store.

I read on reddit that some of the jubilee payment was added on to the base pay, anyone can confirm this?

Probably where everyone dresses as a rainbow 🌈 and embraces every diversity on the planet, whilst leaving boring old joe bloggs to fend for themselves !

Quote from: whatajoke2019 on 23-06-22, 11:52AMAnyone contracted to work the Friday who booked it off should have had it coded as 'Paid Absence - Additional Bank Holiday'. This shouldn't be taken out of your allowance if they've coded it correctly.

The Thursday 'Late May Bank Holiday' is the only day/hours that should've been deducted from our allowances.

Several of us who are contracted to work Friday seem to think the incentive to work said day isn't actually in our pay  :thumbdown:
yes you are spot on should of been coded as 'paid absence- additional bank holiday' this clearly has not happened to me or some others in my store🙁 I wonder how many tesco employees nationwide have been affected? To clarify I work days. I'm sure tesco will make out it was an honest mistake (human error) as is often the case when it financially benefits Tesco

more than likely mickey mouse managers who havent got a clue and have coded it as a bank holiday :-X

your night manager obviously doesn't know how to do their job properly. no problem with mine because they know what they're doing.coded as paid absence :)

Thry were all supposed to be done automatically according to comms, but according to yammer, Many stores have had night pay paid at 0.25 times instead of the correct amount.

**ISSUE WITH JUBILEE CORE HOUR PAYMENTS FOR NIGHT WORKERS**
We have identified that there has been an underpayment for night colleagues who worked core hours from 2nd June into 3rd June, who will have received x1.25 payment for the hours worked on 3rd June as part of that shift, rather than x2.25.
This issue does not affect core hours worked 3rd June into 4th June, or core hours worked on 3rd June only.
We are centrally identifying which colleagues have been impacted and will be correcting these directly with payroll. No action is required at store level.
Please accept our apologies for this system issue.
2.
For those who like more technical detail, worked contracted hours submitted for this overnight shift were sent as a shift total from TAM to payroll, all dated 2nd (when shift started), but payroll was set to pay the higher premium rate only for hours submitted as being worked on 3rd.

Quote from: Alvor the grear on 23-06-22, 08:24AMSo just got my wage slip and Iam a little puzzled, I was on holiday the week commencing 29th may (jubilee week) and wage slip shows as 30 hours holiday to cover 30 contracted hours. I'm contracted to a Friday should this have come out of my annual leave? Or has this been coded incorrectly? I was under the impression friday was a 'special bank holiday' I'm hoping someone can shed light on the matter.

When you booked your annual leave and BH entitlements, was there an extra BH day added to your entitlement allowance? Usually a special event is added as an extra day allowance to your total. If this was the case for the jubilee BH then it could be coded wrongly as AL instead of BH. Check with your manager how it was coded, you should also have an annual BH allowance on your wage slip, is it one extra than usual?

There is no such thing as holidays and bank holidays on the Work+Pay system. Both are in one pot and are coded in hours now not days. 
03 June should have been coded as Paid Absence - Additional Bank Holiday and therefore would not have come out of holiday entitlements.

Well that's working out a treat then  8-)

Appreciate the update on systems  :thumbup:

Apparently those of us affected will see the payment in July's pay packet according to my TM.

Part of me wishes they'd not bothered now given that HMRC will be the only ones to benefit out of it!

lackofinterest

wouldn't have been a problem if nobody had worked it. they we're paying you to be off! grab it with both hands and take the day off!!!

Managers don't process wages, not yet anyway. Wages clerk does things like this, in large store formats anyway.

lackofinterest

my manager books my hols onto the system :)

oldfashionedplayer

Management are supposed to book everything to do with time off, so they go into the system, click, add length, drop down for type of absence etc, comms gave them all the information.. One problem was that comms came down that anyone working didn't have to add anything extra and it would do it automatically... Which ofcourse ends in problems..

I am not contracted for Fridays and was promised by the SM that if I worked Jubilee Friday I would be on double time. Just checked my payslip and I have been paid at time and a quarter. My take home pay is £12 more than last month for a 5.5 hour shift, that is £2 an hour.

Sherwoodforest

Id ask them where it is,if you wernt contracted to friday it was time and a quarter,if you was promised then they owe you

lackofinterest

never believe store managers or senior team. my experience is they will lie to you to get what they want >:D

Teddybonkers

You've been scammed extrastore. Nobody on the shop floor gets double time anymore. You'll get an extra 25% p.h for working Bank holidays, so the additional £12 is correct. I bet they all had a good laugh about it afterwards. Despicable management. >:(

best to confide in a long serving colleague next time rather than believe what a manager tells you!!

Jubilee day was full pay for your contracted hours plus time and a quarter for the hours actually worked. As you are not contracted for the Friday you would only have been eligible for the standard bank holiday rate of time and a quarter. There should have been posters up in store and cards on the tables in your colleague room explaining this, my guess is that when your SM said double time that they weren't aware that you aren't contracted to Friday & therefore ineligible for the extra pay. That said, 5.5 hours at time and a quarter should result in more than £12 extra take home unless there's something else different such as the recent introduction of the increased National Insurance rates.
