Do I have to give my employees paid holiday?

Whether staff are employed on a full-time, part-time, flexible or zero-hours contract, they are entitled to statutory holiday pay.

All staff are entitled to 5.6 weeks of paid holiday a year, including bank holidays. If the worker is part time or works irregular hours, this figure is apportioned accordingly.

If staff are off work through sickness, maternity leave or paternity leave they still accrue holiday at the same rate.

You can offer more paid holiday than the statutory minimum if you wish.

Staff start to accrue holiday entitlement from their first day of employment.

Working out how much holiday a worker is due can be very complex. Please contact us for assistance.
