Supermarket chain Tesco is piloting a scheme aimed at reducing unplanned leave of absence by its employees. The 12-month pilot, running in 20 stores across the UK, involves giving staff three extra days of paid leave each year, but banning sick pay for the first three days of any illness, whether genuine or not. In addition, there are incentives, in the form of shopping vouchers, for staff who complete 12 months without taking any unplanned leave of absence.
