Colleagues allowed to leave because it's snowing and you have to stay….DISCUSS
I'm going to sound a right Victor Meldrew now but anyway…
I happen to live 3 miles from work, others in the office live about 8-10 miles away but they live on 'higher ground' apparently having much thicker deposits of snow, the same people have been let go early so they can make their way home. All leaving with grins on their faces I like to add…
I can understand if you do live in these areas and if you have to pick up kids etc…. BUT
Should they have to…
A – Work these hours back
B – Take the time off as holidays
C – Have the hours off taken out of their salary.
D – ?
Because it is not exactly fair that I have to sit here, answer the phones and take calls for the missing collegues…
I'm sure I'm not the only one, I could bet you a virtual tenner aswell If one of the above was implemented in here the people would think twice about leaving.Posted 8 years agotwinklydaveSubscriber
People here are allowed to go – but have to take it as holiday/flexi leave. I get the sneaking suspicion that people will be 'forgetting' to add it to their holiday records though…
I can pretty much guarantee I'll be the only one in tomorrow as I only live 4 miles away and will therefore be to blame for everything that goes wrong 😕Posted 8 years agopoisonspiderMember
Is your Boss one of those who's gone early? Rank has its privilidges after all.
I'd record all the additional hours you have put in whilst your colleagues have left early and ask for them off at some other time to ride your bike. That's only fair. It depends on how much of a tool your Boss is.Posted 8 years agomastiles_fanylionMember
FFS – snow isn't an excuse to have time off for free. Your colleagues risk not being to make it home, you don't appear to have the same risk.
I walked to work because I can. No-one else has come in as they all have longer drives. I ain't complaining cos that is the way it is.Posted 8 years agotonSubscriber

Don't worry Victor, they'll be the first against the wall come the revolution.
Like I said in a previous post, don't take a job you can't turn up for.
Now I'm going to punch myself in my own head for asking this, but how do they cope elsewhere. I mean this winter weather could last err erm well all winter what with your actual global warming and all that.Posted 8 years agoMunqe-chickMember
I can see where Monkey Boy is coming from! there will always be people in certain jobs who will also take the pi** and claim they can't get to work when you know full well that others from that area have! in this situation then it's right they are forced to take annual leave/TOIL or RDIL. Sod it, I'll struggle to work as I certainly won't want to be out playing with snowballs! But hey karma will work itself out have you never seen My Name is Earl!??Posted 8 years ago
I thought about what I'd do if I was a manager…and decided that the fairest thing is to say that those that can't get in don't have to take it as holiday but they are expected to make up the time by working late or whatever suits. I think no-one wins or loses this way….Posted 8 years ago
