Thanks Tesco bird. I spoke to personnel and was granted a month of dropping one day, it's not enough really but it's for study. I'm gonna fail my course at this rate. I'm hoping they may extend it if I beg and plead  (-*-)

I'm currently on a Lifestyle Break and just have one worry regarding the SAYE scheme.

I've heard it will restart when I return, but I've also heard it will cancel if no payment is made in a 6-week period. Does anyone know which, if any, of these statements are true?

I have looked through terms and conditions but not been able to find any information. Any help is much appreciated.

6 months I think. There is a suspension form on, I think, the our benefits website and I recollect that's what it says.
The wording is a bit ambiguous but I also have the recollection of seeing it in the T&C though I have just noticed that the T&C that I can currently find relate to the S. Ireland and probably not the UK. I don't know if T&C where I have previously seen this were for the UK or S' Ireland

On the "our tesco" site, there is a link to a leaflet called
"Time for you"
If you download that, it will give you most of the details of all breaks/time off that you may need.
It also has on the site, the form 2.11.5 "leave Request Form" that you fill in to formally request the
lifestyle/ career break/adoption time etc etc etc.
Hope that helps.

Does anyone know if you have to give a reason when applying for a lifestyle break?

I don't want to go travelling or anything, just want some time to sort my life out a bit and maybe do some volunteer work but have previously been told I woldn't be allowed one for those reasons.

Whoever told you that is speaking out there ar@e. As long as you fall into the criteria ie satisfactory performer , at least 1 years service and good absence in previous year and give a min 4 weeks notice then you should be fine.

Can you get a lifestyle break if someone else on your section is currently on one?

Can you work elsewhere in the break?

Do you have to say why you want time off?

I was told "actively seeking employment" whist on a lifestyle break was a big no no... But that didn't stop me doing extra days in my part time side job that I never happened to me tin ever before lol.

And yes, you need a valid enough reason. Mine was "I tried to quit, your making me take this"

Yes ,it is fine working elsewhere,and ,no,you do not have to give any reason. 
When I took a lifestyle break,I told them that I would be working elsewhere.

I have requested lifestyle break 3 weeks ago and still have no answer. Is there a deadline for manager's reply like in the case of normal holiday requests?
