How did you go about it? I work in the phoneshop and been told they have to advertise for my position before I can leave and then I may not be able to come back into the same job and the same amount of hours

Because you're taking it a lifestyle break but really it's under "carers leave" circumstances.  I really had no issues first time round but not so easy this time to get time off as a carer

Star lord 2012 it’s not because you are taking a lifestyle break. The full policy is on colleague help for all colleagues to read. The majority of colleagues who are approved a LB go back to their own job, own store, same hours, same dept. The rules are slightly different for “hard to recruit for on a temporary basis” roles and skilled jobs. I believe your role may fall into that category. I suggest you read the policy and ask your Line Manager the reasons for the delay.

Sorry they seem to have totally changed rules for carers this time . I had my lifestyle break booked but then brought it forward and genuinely had no issues . Reading the guidelines today  your not really entitled to take any unpaid other than lifestyle break unless you are the sole carer so they're obviously not allowing any compromise on things like 4 week notice .  As I've already taken a lifestyle break within the past year it means I won't be able to again . This means I can't attend hospital appointments with my husband which is my main issue as he really doesn't take in  the information from the consultants etc

If the app tells you to isolate then legally you must and that absence will be paid either as full company sick pay or if you have run out as top up pay. If you have yet to start your holiday it should be re-booked for a later date.

I had a week’s holiday booked for this last week, Monday 18th - Sunday 24th. On Monday 11th my partner woke up and noticed she couldn’t smell anything, she had a test later that morning which came back positive so I called duty to say I would be isolating for 10 days. (Until Wednesday 20th, three days into my holiday)
 On Monday 18th, first day of my holiday, I too noticed I couldn’t taste or smell so had a test and was positive meaning I had to again isolate for 10 days making my first day back at work Wednesday 27th.
Speaking to my manager about arranging to send my isolation notes in I mentioned that I’d “lost” my holiday as I’d been isolating and would I get the 5 days back, I was told “No. Because my illness started on my first day off it was just unfortunate but that if I’d become ill a day or two before then I would’ve got them back”
Is this correct?

If you're ill when you're on holiday its tough luck. Never thought it was particularly fair when people off sick just before a holiday got to keep it either.
I remember a fellow staff member supposedy being off with flu for 4 weeks, coincidentally when he was building an extension, I think the last week he was off would have been a holiday, he came back for a few days, then had the holiday he'd lost. So we had to struggle again.

Your manager is talking c**p, your holiday should have been cancelled as you were off on isolation from the 11th. So you were coded sick/isolation from the 11th. When you originally phoned in for isolation on the 11th they would have coded you absent for 10 days and the holiday should have been cancelled then.

dotnochance, thanks for that, that’s how I thought it worked. Will ask again when I’m next in.
