Working Time and Holiday Pay

With most workers having the right to a minimum of 5.6 weeks paid annual leave under the Working Time Regulations 1998, employers often need guidance on the law governing both contractual and statutory holiday rights.

We can advise on the sometimes difficult, practical and legal issues that arise.  These could cover the treatment of bank and public holidays, holiday entitlement for part time workers, employees on sick leave, adoption, maternity or parental leave and how to actually calculate holiday pay.  This can be a particularly troubling area for employers following Lock, Bear Scotland and other holiday pay cases. We can provide up to date advice on calculating overtime and commission when employees take time off.

We can also ensure that contracts and policies in relation to working time and holiday pay are up to date and look at holiday policies should your business wish to operate with annual shutdowns or to control when holidays can be taken.
