Paid holidays rest periods and entitlement to time off
Full-time employees are entitled to 5.6 weeks’ paid holiday each year. This means that full-time employees are entitled to at least 28 days’ paid leave each year.
Part-time employees, temporary staff and casual workers are entitled to paid holidays on a pro-rata basis. If you give your full-time workers more than the statutory entitlement, then your part-timers and other workers are also entitled to the same amount of holiday leave also calculated on a pro-rata basis.
There is a holiday entitlement calculator on the GOV.UK website to help you work out entitlements.
You will need to develop a policy for statutory leave for workers who may be entitled to paid leave for parts of days under new rules.
