One of our colleagues has had a lets talk because he couldn't do an extra shift due to other plans & was told it can go to disciplinary if he turns down 2 more shifts.

QuoteFor full time flexible colleagues your total weekly hours will be the same each week, these will be allocated within your agreed availability window.

Quote from: Redshoes on 18-03-21, 07:16AMOn the new availability sheets for flexi workers you have to have two days off a week and 11 hours between contracted shifts. You can also only show availability before your shift or after but not both sides. All this cuts down the availability big time but it's only the assigned side of things that are cut. You can still pick up overtime outside your availability but it should be your choice. These new sheets are for when we go to work&pay but they need to be in the system now. You can work the hours you are working but you should not be assigned that much. Are the hours on a flexi sheet? If so it's a wonder it has not been flagged up by wages as a copy of the flexi sheets should go in file. We issue one overtime shift a week to each flexi worker and the rest of the overtime is up for grabs to anyone.
Quote from: FarmerFred on 19-06-21, 06:46PMSee the post above - the policy states that as a full time flexi worker that you will do the same number of hours each week - therefore you cannot logically be disciplined for refusing overtime. The three strikes "rule" relates to failing to flex within your availability window, or refusing overtime on a part-time flexi contract & even then it's not a hard rule. Any time a manager comes out with such things - always ask them to show you the policy that backs up their assertions!
Quote from: Redshoes on 24-06-21, 05:57AMA full time flexi worker still needs to have two days off, on the availability sheet. Due to not being able to flex up on Sundays, not being able to flex both sides of shifts and the 11 hour rule between shifts there can only be very limited flexibility. It's a simple matter of maths.
