How much holiday leave are employees entitled to?
Paid annual leave is a legal right that an employer must provide. Holiday pay is worked out according to the kind of hours someone works and how they’re paid for the hours.
- full-time workers,
- part-time workers,
- agency workers,
- workers working irregular shifts, and
- casual workers including those on zero-hours contracts.
Workers are entitled to a week’s pay for each week of statutory leave that they take.
You can calculate holiday entitlement for a full year and part of a leave year (if the job started or finished part way through the year) using this calculator: Calculate holiday entitlement – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
