Holiday Pay

Holiday Pay

Most workers have a right to a minimum of 5.6 weeks’ paid annual leave under the Working Time Regulations 1998, this assumes of course a five days a week form of employment and includes bank holidays.

This rule is also subject to other considerations such as whether the employee started part way through a holiday year, worked on a part-time basis or has taken other forms of leave already. Depending on the situation the contractual rights might result in a greater or lesser entitlements. Recent case law has confirmed that some forms of overtime must also be included in holiday pay.

We can advise you on your particular circumstances and entitlements in the context of the most recent changes in the law. We also offer our assistance on a fixed fee basis so that there are no surprises to you in relation to our costs.
