Nobody is paid double time and a quarter,if your contracted on the friday ,you get paid if you take it iff or not,if you opt to work its time and a quarter on top of your friday pay,,,i believe for nights its the thursday night,as per usual its probably a grey area from store to store

"if you opt to work it's time and a quarter on top of your Friday pay"

Does that not equate to x2.25 if you work it  :question:

The phrase “double time and a quarter” is confusing depending on how it’s said.

Saying “It’s DoubleTime and a quarter” would mean 2.25

“It’s Double. Time and a quarter” would mean 2.5

Some in my store are convinced it’s the latter including one manager that’s been getting people in on that assumption……

In my store Thursday night is the 'Monday ' and Fri night is the free night off. Is this the same for all stores?

shouldn't be, I believe the official thing is "Thursday and Friday" since they are both bank holiday listings, but tesco only recognises Friday,  and w&p recognises nights as the night before... Least with holiday policy anyhow regarding them.

Nights is Thursday, Days is Friday.

Do you work in a store on work and pay system ?. Does your store have  an "in store arrangement on nights bank hols"

Is there any other store on work and pay  system who still take there bank holidays on the bank holiday night rather than the night before .

is there anybody else who is off Thursday and Friday night for the Jubilee weekend.
Thanks All .

Our store doesn't have an arrangement, it is on work and pay though.  The answers on yammer are "The email we received with clarification says for night colleagues it is to be Thurs 2nd into Fri 3rd." and there's also a thing of how to code people working Friday who are contracted to it, paid at double time and and a quarter.

@Hoover the nights bank holidays are Wednesday & Thursday, The Wednesday night is end of May bank holiday that was moved and Thursday is the extra bank holiday for queens jubilee if contracted to Thursday nights you either take it off or work it and paid for shift plus time and a quarter as can’t carry this bank holiday over to another time

From searching, its Wednesday and Thursday for Nights, as Thursday is a Normal Bank holiday, and Friday is queens jubilee (special), So from the way it works for nights according to colleague helps is:

"it’s the Thursday night is the “special bank holiday” as the majority of the hours for Thursdays shift fall on the Friday."

taken from yammer, as i said in a previous one, this is another post about asking and a confirmation.

Thursday being a normal bank holiday comes out of holiday entitlement and follows normal holiday procedures of may be required to work if not enough unless joining before X date, so Wednesday would be that for Nights while Thursday is the day for nights.

annoying if you want to be out all friday etc so become ill people. lol

as for christmas the same information with the paid abscences information said about falling on sunday 25th, so its a "Normal day", and they move it to tuesday 27th.

this whole double time and a quarter irritates the hell out of me...its not its simple as that. how many people actually just work contracted hours...they don't. for example 4 hours contracted on stock control but always work say 8. so that person will get paid 4 hours contract and 8 and 1.25....so thats not double time and a quarter
