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:

What night are the night team getting off for the jubilee ?

Nights is Thursday, Days is Friday.

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?

oldfashionedplayer

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.

Sherwoodforest

@nomad ,it equates to 1.25 if you work it,, you get 1 days pay if your contracted a friday and sat at home

glad somebody else sees it as it is!!

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

StinkyPoo

Is it definitely weds night and Thurs night for the night crew? We've been told Thurs night and Fri night!

oldfashionedplayer

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

So 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.

My wage slip shows just £40 for the bank holiday which doesn't seem like 2.25 pay. Worked both the Thursday and Friday as contracted so don't know how they can mess that up

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?

Anyone 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:

Wage slip showing £37 for working 14 hours jubilee bank holiday. Worked the Thursday and Friday. I work nights but speaking to people on days they have been paid a lot more.

On work and pay bank holidays show in a different way then you might be used to:

Contracted hours that you work on a bank holiday will just be included in Basic Hours pay (1.0).
And then you will receive the premium as Bank Holiday Premium (0.25).
Any overtime (extra hours above contract or hours on a none contracted day) show as Bank Holiday Overtime day/night (1.25).

In the jubilees friday case: all contracted hours on that day should have been paid in your basic pay (1.0) and if you worked, with a bank holiday premium of 1.25 (instead of 0.25)
All Overtime (extra hours above contract or hours on a none contracted day) on the jubilee was paid (1.25).

Hopefully this will help you to figure out if you have been paid correctly and if not flag it up with the relevant people!

Looking on yammer, it seems alot of night staff are having issues with the payments not being correct.

So mine worked out as 9.5 hours bank holiday pay total £41.78, so £4.40 per hour extra.

StinkyPoo

One of our managers told us the bank holiday pay for nights doesn't seem to have been done correctly. People who were contracted and didn't work were paid the same as those who were contracted and did work! Shambles as usual!

if tosco are gonna pay you for having a day off why work it???. i'm not surprised there's c**k ups! some people will just never learn 8-)
