Making Sense of Employment Law

How much holiday are you entitled to?  Most employees - whether full-time or part-time - are legally entitled to 5.6 weeks of paid annual leave. Additional annual leave may be agreed as part of an employee’s contract of employment. 

If you work a 5-day week you are entitled to 28 days’ holiday (ie 5 x 5.6). Someone working a 3-day week is entitled to 16.8 days’ holiday, calculated by multiplying the number of days worked by 5.6.

Employers can set the times that staff take their leave, for example for a Christmas shut down. If your employment ends, you are entitled to be paid for the leave time due and not taken.

What about public holidays?
There is no legal right to paid leave for public holidays; any rights to paid time off for these holidays depends on your contract of employment. Paid public holidays can be counted as part of the statutory 5.6 weeks of holiday.
