4hrs OT working into a Rest Day/Banking Holiday

Recommended Posts

I see that we are into the silly season again and management are trying to stop officers claiming the above 4 hrs OT by saying that an officer will have to remain on duty for the full 4 hrs before they will get paid it........................Can management enforce this and if an officer leaves at 08-10hrs can they be disciplined if all paperwork has been completed for the handover prisoner?

Management state that officers should go out to other jobs on the box & deal................I don't think so!

Are any other Forces doing this.

 

cheers

John

Not aware of it in my force plus H&S consideration of you have been on duty all night, are tired and they want you driving for another 3 hours??

My force you have to get to 8.15 due to the duty booking system to get the 4 hours.

What does your Federation say about it? They are the first port of call for such advice, not some random people on a forum.

You would have thought management would have consulted the Fed before giving out the order?

 Is this coming to all Forces soon!

8-15am working into a rest day but if you work past 07-15am into a Bank Holiday then you are entitled to 4hrs DT & a Day back...........the 1/2hr does not apply on Bank Holidays and Banks Holidays are not part of the FSDR............never knew this & now management are saying to claim 4hrs you must work the 4hrs.

Fed never replied to me..................

Did you speak to local fed rep? Try another rep otherwise to get definitives. 

Although, you can find Police reg guide relating to working times online. 

There have been no changes to the regs so not sure what they’re playing at there!

As far as I understand it, the police working day starts as 8am, so working to 8am puts you at the start of the next new day, this being your first WL day.  Working until 8:15am means you have worked 15mns into your WL day and it is these 15mins that entitle you to claiming for working on a WL day with less than 5 days notice, attracting a 4hr payment at the enhanced rate. Though something tells me you can also claim an additional 1 1/4 hrs for travelling time, but I'm not entirely sure about that.
