Hey everyone.  Bit of advice needed.  I have an investigatory into taking products, setting them aside and purchasing them on my break later on in my shift.  Apparently this is a breach of the "shopping policy" but I cannot seem to find this on the list of colleagues policies.  Has anyone any idea as to what this policy might be?  Thank you.

The policy is here

https://help.ourtesco.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021121140-Colleague-Shop-Shopping-Guide

Particularly

"You can only take products from the colleague shop during the following times;
            Before the start of your

  • shift
                During your breaks
                At the end of your shift once you have clocked out
                At managers discretion

    All products should remain in the reduced to clear cabinet prior to 21:00
    Products cannot be placed to one side or put out the back before 21:00
    Products cannot be placed into a shopping trolley for an excessive time prior to purchasing them at 21:00"

What possessed you to think it would be OK to do it? Is it worth losing your job for the few pence that you save? Colleagues have been sacked for things like this. If people start taking the p***, they'll stop colleague shop altogether.

We had a member of staff sacked  for doing this a few year back. Tesco came down really hard on it. Interviewed loads of staff. The person  who did it was eventually sacked they were suspended immediately, she appealed many times before eventually getting sacked. Tesco classed this as theft.

Lost her job over stashing bread after final reductions then getting it for free with colleague shop.
She had done it many times before people clocked onto it.

The reason Tesco came down so hard on it was one store and not one I had anything to do with was abusing the system, taking any reduced items staff want out the back until gone 9pm then all on staff shop. For the avoidance of doubt we were talking baskets full of food not just the odd item (not that doing it with one item makes it any more acceptable) This sort of thing is soon flagged up on the reports that run each day and resulted in several sackings once an investigation had been done.
Do not let anyone tell you there is not a decent job and life beyond Tesco.

lackofinterest

let the customers have the reduced s*** or the out of date s***!!! go elsewhere and pay full price!! if tosco treat staff like this then give them f*** all!!

Seek advice Union,if you are in! prep your self with a good supporting case. eg, if only 1st time or, you were never told, never signed documents, not in training. Plead ignorance and that now you know it will never happen again. Not sure if its worth throwing yourself at the mercy of the hearing.  But i think they may well take a very dim view of this and you may end up with more than a  severe slapping, your working career may well
be down the pan!

The above all relates to reduced stock and colleague shop  8-)

So is there anything that covers non reduced stock? As neil210 hasn't stated whether it was reduced stock he'd put aside to purchase later, or normal priced?

Still not allowed, you cant put even say a bottle of fanta out the back to buy later as the company views this as "depriving" customers from being able to buy said item. Can even be seen as theft if you get a manager dealing with it who really wants to go for it as you have effectively removed the item from where it should be without making payment.
