Get her to point out the policy to the SM showing that the 3 waiting days don't apply and that she is entitled as per company policy for full sick pay, if he pushes back raise a greivance, as buddy-buddy SM's and the PMs are, PMs have to follow policy as per code of business conduct which means upholding grievances where the SM has clearly not followed companies people policies.

Pregnancy related sickness is payable from Day 1, the only proviso is that she has enough sick day entitlement remaining to cover the time off. It is coded as sickness on the HRAM system and then the relevant form is sent off to Payroll to authorise the payment from Day 1.

Just wanted to check that she had previously informed them she was pregnant and had all relevant paperwork etc in . Don't know if that makes a difference .

Need to make sure it was pregnancy related sickness and not sick while pregnant to get the 3 days pay paid.
Slipping and spraining your wrist so you can't work on the checkouts isn't pregnancy related so even if pregnant would not be paid.

As it's documented as pregnancy related sickness, your manager needs to adhere to policy, if he doesn't comply, go down the grievance route.

It was 3 years ago when I emailed the policy team, I think I found the email address in the old staff handbook (I think they replaced it with OurTesco) so it might not exist anymore. I would suggest getting your personnel manager to confirm the policy or to get you the contact information for the policy team (if they still exist), and then follow through with what I said in my quoted comment.
