Time Off

All employees are entitled to 5.6 weeks' paid holiday each year.  In addition to annual leave and common types of leave, such as maternity, paternity or carer's leave, employees may be entitled to take time off for other commitments. Not all is necessarily paid for by the employer.

  • for antenatal care
  • for dependents
  • to accompany a worker to a disciplinary or grievance hearing
  • for employee representatives
  • for European Works Councils
  • to accompany an employee at a flexible working hearing
  • Jury service
  • Parental leave
  • Adoption leave
  • for occupational pension scheme trustees and directors of trustee companies
  • for public duties
  • for job hunting or to arrange training when facing redundancy
  • for safety representatives
  • for study or training
  • for work for trade union duties and activities
  • for union learning representatives
  • under the Working Time Regulations
