Is the weekly pay just basic or do you add on market supplement and Sunday rate pay when you put it in the VLH calculator?

It goes on the rate of pay that is on your terms and conditions of employment.

You either get your contractual pay, or if you've done overtime then they will take the average you have earned over your feb march April payslips

If your age + length of service = 80 then you keep it...if not, you can use it up to and on your final pay from Tesco.

Just found out only one full time position in our bakery after this reshuffle one more with 34 hrs and only part time after that, one has been job matched on the 34hr shift an one has been told he's not been job matched three more full timers including myself will find out tomorrow if we have been job matched or not

At what point do we find out redundancy package? Job matched to an extent but will be losing £120 a month. How do we make a decision with such a lack of info..

I would imagine your next meeting, I personally couldn't afford a cut in pay by that much.

How's that a job match if your losing £120 a month?

Been a fully skilled baker for 4 years now. And my results came back as no job match. How is this possible? I’m pretty passionate about the baker side to it. And tried to accommodate as much ‘availability’ As I can. But points were not enough. I can’t get my head around potentially being made redundant or maybe finding something else in store. ( even no there are no job vacancies in store) I feel like I’m being pushed out anyway. And with what’s going on in the world right now what is the likelyhood I can find another full time Permanent job?

You'll have to take what you can get for now, there are independant artisan bakeries and restaurants that are looking for skilled bakers.

I've been job matched, iam so down about the whole situation. I'm considering my future with the company. The team I've worked with for 20 years is being destroyed, with complete disregard.

It looks to me like they only want 1 skilled Baker in to work 3am. It's a 50/50  ??? And dotcom.

I wish everyone affected the best of luck for the future, maybe offsetting reduancy till August might not be a bad move for some. At least you have some sort of income till things pick up again.

You have not been job matched ??? Your hours and income will be less. Did you state a drop in hours hours/ shifts  on your availability form ???

I know I haven't been job matched and they are trying to push the boundaries on our availability hours. That said we filled availability forms in before the pandemic. Would just like to weigh my options up before making a decision and for that you need an exact figure for redundancy payment.

If the hours/ shifts / days you are being offered are not in the parameters of what you put on your availability form, then you haven't been job matched and redundancy is an option.
Check the VLH redundancy calculator on this site, it is pretty accurate to the amount of redundancy you can expect.

Was told I could defer till August 22. But not guaranteed a job in my department and number of hours. And if I wanted to leave before 22August would lose redundancy pay. Would be hell of a risk to take.

@Helpisontheway, defer from 'when' to 22nd Aug ? ( defer = postpone, put back )

So you must have already been given a redundancy date else it cannot be deferred.  Therefore how can you lose redundancy pay if you have a finishing date.

Something not right here.

@Oldman, the excess.

Given a finishing date 2 may. Manager told me if I defer to 22 August no guarantee of hours, department I would be working in. And if finish before 22 August would be taken as resignation. Therefore losing redundancy pay. Is my manager mistaken or telling me porkies.
