Holiday Entitlement

  • All UK workers have the right to paid time off work, or statutory holiday entitlement, no matter how few hours they work.

    Holiday entitlement is a fundamental right, which stems from a European directive and decisions in the European Court. It is not simply a health & safety matter. 

    A flexible workforce allows your business to react quickly to changing demands, but calculating holiday entitlement and pay for your employees can be challenging.
