    Workplace Lottery 2nd Jan 18 at 7:38 PM

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum to be posting in. Please let me know if there's somewhere more appropriate.

    I recently won a holiday for two as the top prize in a workplace lottery.

    I am still a full time employee at the organisation, but since winning the prize draw I have handed in my notice and will shortly be leaving the business.

    When trying to claim my prize, i've been told that "the prize won't be valid because the prizes are donated based on the employee traveling & the supplier getting future sales". I'm not even sure what the second part even means, and no terms & conditions of the raffle have been shared.

    Is the business within their rights to retroactively apply conditions to a draw?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, no org can retrospectively alter terms unilaterally. It's breach of contract.

    Send a polite email requesting the Terms & Conditions.
    Please be polite to OPs and remember this is a site for Claimants and Appellants to seek redress against their bank, ex-boss or retailer. If they wanted morality or the view of the IoD or Bank they'd ask them.

    It means that the supplier of the holiday is sending it on the basis that you might sell the package to others.
