Tesco (express) Doesn’t Pay Me After Closing?

I work a shift from 5-11 with a half hour break. If i work past closing time (which we always do since we have to face up after all the customers left in the shop have been served) we don’t get paid for it. Is this illegal?

    Yes

    Strictly speaking you should be payed. I would suggest speaking to citizens advice or calling a government employment office and enquire. Sometimes they catch you out in your contract and sometimes people are made to work overtime but won’t get paid for it.

    Depends on the terms of your contract.

    I worked in a pub/restaurant last year to pay for college, I was working from 8 to 4 am but we had to stay till 5 to clean up. We never got paid past 4 and I know it sucks but I would just suck it up if you complain they’ll just hire someone else.

    Unless your contract of employment includes overtime payment and the time you work after the store closes is outside of your normal hours you are not entitled to be paid for this time. The company doesn’t have to pay you for overtime

    I’ve known 5 friends who have all worked for Tesco stores and they all said the same: if you’re late for the start of your shift, you get docked a whole unit of pay (usually a quarter of an hour) but any time spent working after the end of your shift is not paid. It never changes, apparently. Its just another aspect of the lovely Tesco way of doing things. Since learning this I try to be considerate of the staff who work there, and not shop at the last minute. I’m also patient when they want to change cashiers or close a checkout, because I know its not the individual cashier’s fault but their horrible money-grabbing employer.

    challenge the manager not to t/l who is probably running the shift as if you are working that time you should be paid for it. Is this a new store as the facing up should or could have been done earlier as you hardly are that busy after say 8pm. Don’t do it if you are not getting paid as it sounds like someone is trying to pull a fast one and have a chat with a union rep if you don’t get anywhere.

    Not illegal as most stores in the UK do it. It is a case of putting up with it if you want to keep your job unfortunately. UK
