Time off. Paid or not?
« on: 13-12-19, 01:03PM »
I'm due to have a steroid injection in my hip joint soon, probably need a few days off. Seeing as it's a planned procedure,do I get paid from day one or do I have to wait the three days? I've been employed since 2012

Three days, there are medical and surgery exceptions to the three day rule, but I'm not sure if that's one of them. But people who started in 2012 and later do have the 3 day rule apply.

Qouted from our Tesco..... If your planned operation or minor hospital procedure is invasive & requires recovery time we would consider any time off as sickness absence & paid from your CSP entitlement & not subject to 3 day wait .

I gave all the information required, told them about the procedure and recovery time, quoted the our tesco policy above yet they still ballsed up my pay. Got it back eventually though and paid me full shifts for doing a phased return to work.

My manager has just informed me that my time off is either holiday or unpaid. He's said that's what wages have told him

The policy definition fits your situation, go to the PM and advise him/her of policy and for them to have the open and honest conversation with said wage clerk.

Oh well if wages have told him, then it must be correct as the wages clerks are a law unto themselves, think half of them believe the payment is coming out of their own pockets. Inform your manager that you have been advised by the union it is paid absence.

Thanks. You're spot on about wages and some managers. They act like it's THEIR money you're taking. I'll certainly say that the union say it's paid absence

There is only so much sick pay. If colleague has run out of sick pay the options are holiday or unpaid. Sick pay resets on your annual start date but if used all in the year before I think it's only something like four wks. Is recovery from operation is during a period of time when sick pay has been used and annual start date is way off you have limited options.
I'm not an expert on sick pay as I have luckily enough not to ever had to use it. I just know about the annual reset date and that it's a limited amount. We need to know this much for removing people from the tablet, as in paid or unpaid.

I contacted usdaw office and they confirmed that the 3 day wait isn't applicable on a planned op. Seems like wages and several day managers don't have a clue

Just checked my wage online. Guess what. They haven't paid me. That place is a bloody joke. My manager is off for two weeks so any idea what I can do?

Did you inform the manager, beforehand, that it was a paid absence clarified and confirmed by the union, and is Tesco policy?

If you did, then you grievance under T&C's that your manager and wage clerk were made fully aware of tesco policy beforehand, but knowingly and deliberately withheld payment due.

If you didn't, then you grievance under T&C's that your manager and wage clerk, are ignorant to, or deliberately ignoring, Tesco policy regarding paid absence, and witholding payments due.

Do not wait for your manager to return before you grievance,and do not be persuaded to wait for them to return either!

You realise that the 3 day wait for sickness due a planned operation is only payable if the colleague has sickness entitlement left. If the colleague doesn't have any entitlement left then they won't get paid.

Thanks guys. I'm stressed enough as it is without work messing my wages up. My mental health is at a low point and this is making it a lot worse.
