    RANDOM : Who is back in work and who isn't? How much christmas holidays has everyone got?

    Morning all!

    I was back to work Monday, and in the rest of this week but not Friday. I work Monday to Friday, but miss out on Xmas Day and New Year's Day as holidays as they're both on Fridays!!

    Man it's depressing being back! My Christmas officially lasted 3 days while the rest of my family and pretty much all of my friends are still off work enjoying their Christmas! I barely got to see some of my family! Some of my friends have 3 weeks off! Makes me feel crap as my time off work is not just precious, but just the thought of everyone except me relaxing makes me sick! Grr!

    So what about everyone else here? Are you still off work? How long have you had off work?

    Looks like lots of you have plenty of time off too, grrr! I miss my lil neices and wanna play on my Band Hero I had for Christmas! Always will be a kid me....

    For those of you who are part time, how do you do it? I work 4 days out of 7 which is still technically full time as it's 9-5, but I'm rarely out of my overdraft, if I took one less day off a week, I would seriously suffer!

    I wish I could, but I was told I couldn't take any time off over Christmas. We're a small store consisting of 7 staff...

    this makes no sense:-

    . I work Monday to Friday, but miss out on Xmas Day and New Year's Day as holidays as they're both on Fridays!!

    What do you mean that you miss them out as holidays as they are both on fridays?

    Hubby has had no time off and won't be getting any as is a care worker.

    If you meant that you work mon-thurs, then if full time workers get 8 days paid annual bank holiday entitlement, then you should be entitiled to 4/5th of 8 days too.

    If an employer provides for full time employees to be paid for public holidays in addition to the statutory entitlement then to deny a part-timer that same concession on a pro rata basis could amount to discrimination under the Part-Time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2000.
