Holiday Pay Entitlement

Published / Last Updated on 14/08/2014

Holiday Pay Entitlement

Part-time workers have the same holiday pay entitlement to leave as full-time workers, you are not allowed to treat one set of staff differently to another.

Bank Holidays and Public Holidays

Whether or not this additional leave is taken on a bank holiday is up to individual employers to agree with their workers. When Christmas and New Year public holidays fall at a weekend, other week days are declared as public holidays.

All paid leave for bank holidays should also be granted on a pro rata basis for part-time workers.

Entitlements in total:
