'bout time they did that, although i've always been lucky and bank holidays have never been part of my holiday entitlement.

From DirectGov:

Since 1 October 2007 all workers have had a statutory right to at least 4.8 weeks paid annual leave (that's 24 days paid holiday if you work five days a week). From 1 April 2009 this entitlement will increase to 5.6 weeks (28 days).
The basics of holiday rights

There is a minimum right to paid holiday, but your employer may offer more than this. The main things you should know about holiday rights are:
[LIST]
[*]you are entitled to a minimum of 4.8 weeks times your usual working week (from 1 October 2007)
[*]the entitlement will increase to 5.6 weeks from 1 April 2009
[*]those working part-time are entitled to the same level of holiday pro rata (so currently 4.8 times your usual working week)
[*]you start building up holiday as soon as you start work
[*]your employer can control when you take your holiday
[*]you get paid your normal pay for your holiday
[*]when you finish a job, you get paid for any holiday you’ve not taken
[*]bank and public holidays can be included in your minimum entitlement
[*]you continue to be entitled to your holiday leave throughout your ordinary and additional maternity leave and paternity and adoption leave[/LIST]

have u got the link for that?

The best way to get a link to text that someone has quoted, is to copy and paste it into "Google"

I copied the 1st paragraph, and got this:

so we are entitled to 24 days now, soon to be 28 (if working a 5 day week) but bank holidays can be included, so there are 8 bank holidays i think, so basically we should be getting 16 days now, with a further 4 days from april next year.


yes:thumbsup:

By law the minimum is:

4.8 weeks per year = 24 days paid leave ( bank holidays are not counted as standard.) This is up to end of March when the basic increases to 5.6 days per year which is 28 days per year.

Remember: this is a pro-rata amount, based on someone working a 5 day week.

Bank holidays are not counted as set days off.

Your employer can dictate when you take your holidays.

Hope this helps!

Not so sure!


"Contracts of employment:
introduction Public and bank holidays

You do not have a statutory right to paid leave on bank and public holidays. If your employer gives paid leave on a bank or public holiday, this can count towards your minimum holiday entitlement. There are eight permanent bank and public holidays in England and Wales (nine in Scotland and ten in Northern Ireland).

If you work on a bank or public holiday, there is no automatic right to an enhanced pay rate. What you get paid depends on your contract of employment."

You may be right, I understood that the changes meant that you had to take the time off and couldn't work it to get paid double if you see what I mean>
