All UK workers now have the statutory right to paid holidays. The statutory minimum
holidays are currently 5.6 weeks a year (including any bank holidays or public holidays
that are taken).
There are ‘fall-back’ rules for the notice required to request, grant or refuse
a holiday and there are special rules for calculating the entitlement for someone
who joins during the employer’s holiday year and for the taking of holidays during
the first year of service.
Workers have a statutory entitlement to pay in lieu of any unused holidays when
their employment ends, but many employers do not realise that there is no corresponding
statutory entitlement for employers to recoup pay for any holidays that have been
‘over-taken’. Recouping pay for ‘over-taken’ holiday is a matter of contract, and
without a correctly worded
employment contract, employers are unable to make a holiday pay deduction.
