Tesco New Worker Holiday entitlementWatch
Most places have a 6weeks in advance request for time off or holidays.
And especially around Christmas they probably have extra rules about requests.
It is generally 6weeks in advance for requests. However most retail have rules about no time off over the Christmas holidays so it will probably come down to you finding someone who can cover your shift for you.
So I’m a new worker at Tesco just been there a little under a month now and I’ve been given my Christmas shifts however I really need the Boxing Day off due to family commitments however my contracted hours fall on a Saturday, how do I go about this?
First of all you should had made it clear you couldn't work over the Xmas period.
Unfortunately I think threeportdrift made the point clear about temporary staff over permanent staff as temporary staff are there / employed to cover any permanent staff holiday periods.
You should had put this in writing / requesting this off when you first started and wait and see if you were granted it like.
I think that all shop / supermarkets staff has also got family commitments but majority has to unfortunately work over this period,
As a team leader with them I can relate to your matter but this will be my first Xmas period off with them in all my years I been working there.
A copy of the employee handbook will be online if you log into your tesco account or if you not yet did this then sign upto it but you'll usually need your employee pay number which you'll get on or before you get first pay. If not ask your manager on this matter.
