I've noticed a lot of 'I want extra time off and I want paying for it' across many platforms

Not in my case ,why should I walk away from a fully paid holiday with no chance of any money back

Re: Christmas; Boxing Day and Bank Holidays. My normal contracted working week as a delivery driver includes Friday; Saturday and Monday, when booking my 20/21 holidays I was told I’d have 3 days fewer to book than my entitlement as they’d been allocated for the 25th; 26th and 28th.

Same happens to me - Christmas Day and Easter for example, always take up two of my holiday allowance. If I really wanted to work those days though, they would let me go in and find me work in another department that is open. For instance, filling the shelves.

Regards to the booked holidays, if you booked before 8th May you can be coded as sick during quarantine on return.  If booked after, you use holidays, lifestyle break, unpaid etc.  Although I think the quarantine will be scrapped for european destinations at some point.

Hi all,
In January I went into hospital for an operation and was off sick until March when I then went into shielding until the until the beginning of August when I returned to work.
Whilst of sick in March I had been 3 days holiday booked from w/c 9th March which I haven’t had.
Had spoke to several managers whilst I was away, so they do know about this.
I have submitted forms to wages, wage slip for the end of the year, which clearly shows that I’m owed the 3 days and  bottom of holiday form was agreed and signed.
I haven’t heard anything back, what should I do now?

Long Term Sickness Absence

If you are on long term sickness absence at the end of the holiday year (31st March) you may be able to have some of your remaining holiday paid up to you. The maximum holiday you can have paid up is 4 weeks (20 days pro-rata) and this is only if you have not taken at least 4 weeks (20 days pro-rata) holiday over the course of the holiday year.
If you have taken at least 4 weeks (20 days pro-rata) holiday you will not be able to have any outstanding holiday paid up to you, and will lose any outstanding holidays left in your holiday balance on 31st March. So, you should still book and take your holiday even whilst you are off sick.
For example: A colleague has 6 weeks (30 days pro-rata) combined holiday and bank holiday entitlement. They have taken 3 weeks (15 days pro-rata) holiday over the course of the year. On 31st March, 1 week (5 days pro-rata) will be paid up to the colleague (4 weeks – 1 week = 3 weeks or 20 days – 15 days = 5 days) but the other 2 weeks (10 days pro-rata) will be lost.

I'd be very surprised if this is the policy of Tesco.......the bit about:


If you're on long term sick pay you should book your holidays as normal!?

If, for example, I was off for a year (let's say Apr 1st - 31st March inclusive), during that year I would "earn holiday entitlement" but would be unable to take holiday - therefore, I would expect my holiday entitlement to carry forward to the following year when I would then have "two years" entitlement to take.

Not overly sure about the BH entitlement - but at the very least, my contractual holiday allowance -even if it was 30 days - would carry forward.

Cannot see how Tesco could not follow this?

If someone has not been able to use their holiday because they’ve been on long-term sick leave, they can carry it over.

Employees on long-term sick leave can carry over 4 weeks’ unused holiday, unless the employer allows more to be carried over. This holiday must be used within 18 months from the date it’s carried over.

If you haven't taken your 4 weeks pro rata it is usually paid out. Wages clerks receive a brief and send forms to Payroll to pay up the shortfall. When Work and Pay launches the rumour is that it will be possible to carry holidays over. Unfortunately like most of things the company promises I am in no doubt it will be a while before the new system works as expected.

You can refuse the pay out and insist on taking the paid holidays that you have missed.  The law looks on the holidays as being essential for you mental and physical well being.  Check with ACAS.

All work (or sickness) makes Jack or Jill a dull person.
