Christmas Bonus

05 Dec 2018, 23:17

Hi guys any help would be appreciated, have been off sick last 2 months after having an operation. Sick note ended on the 30th November, therefore my first day back was Saturday 1st December (although I was long weekend so my actual first day back at work was Tuesday 4th). Now back on light duties so am I entitled to the Christmas Bonus or not? Nothing has been put in writing, manager just said come in and do however many hours you want until you get tired, then go home.

If you are getting full pay then you will get the full bonus you are entitled to (contracted hours - pro rata).

Our dom didn’t upgrade lot of part timers to 38 hours but has said if they work the hours they will still get the full time bonus. Anyone know if that’s accurate?

The RM documentation that refer to this say your contract has to be temporarily upgraded and that OT does not count - no doubt they'll find out
in a couple of weeks. He/she might be relying on the fact that after Xmas when it has become apparent that they haven't got paid the F/T bonus
a lot of posties can't be arsed arguing the toss and it will all be forgotten about.

When he 'said' they'll get the bonus without a contract upgrade was this written down anywhere? Managers say a lot of things, then the next week deny everything.

Those p/t staff who have not had their contracts changed will not get the full bonus, its not based on how much o/t you do. Get the Dom to put it in writing before its too late.

The bonus is paid on Friday 21st of December. By the time they can check and see that they inevitably have not been paid the full bonus, it will be a bit late to only work hours for rest of Xmas given it is only 2 days remaining, the Saturday and Xmas Eve!

Fridays payslip will show 38 hours for those put up. If it doesn’t they won’t go over their contract hours.
