Getting holiday pay right for your company and your workforce

Employers have a statutory obligation to give paid annual leave to all workers covered by the Working Time Regulations 1998. The statutory minimum leave entitlement in a leave year is 5.6 working weeks which calculates as 28 days for someone who works 5 days a week.

It is at the employer’s discretion to decide how much annual leave he will provide, subject to the minimum of 5.6 weeks. An employer may operate different levels of entitlement within the business meaning that it differs from department to department.
