ACAS has today issued a revised guide to holiday and holiday pay.
The web version (which rather embarrassingly claims at the top to be dated as of November 2003, but at the bottom as of April 2003).
It provides the answers to (or guidance on) a number of questions, such as:
- do employees have the right to paid leave on public holidays?
- can a part-time worker who works Wednesdays to Fridays claim the right to paid bank holidays which fall on a Monday?
- does leave accrue during periods of absence?
- how must a worker apply for leave?
