  • Holiday Pay - loss of holiday

    During the pandemic my employer has told all employees that due to government guidelines it is not possible to book any holidays, however I was allowed to take off 4 days in July as this was pre-booked before the pandemic.

    We have now been told by the employer that they have been advised by HR that holidays can now be taken, however the holidays are being rostered and we have no choice as to when we can take them.

    Because there are so many holidays to be taken it is impossible for all employees to take there entitlement before the end of March. We have been told that some entitlement will be allowed to roll-over to the next year but we will all loose some holidays but as yet we have not received anything in writing.

    Surely an employee is entitled to all holiday entitlement even if it's rolled over as it was the employers choice to not allow holidays?

    Under a change to regulation on the carry over of statutory holiday workers who have not taken all of their statutory annual leave entitlement due to COVID-19 will now be able to carry it over into the next 2 leave years.

    The regulations allow up to 4 weeks of unused leave to be carried into the next 2 leave years, which removes the requirement on business to ensure that workers take statutory amount of annual leave in any one year.

    This may help support your case given the situation.
    I do my best to provide good practical advice, however I do so without liability.
    If you have any doubts then do please seek professional legal advice.

      Thank you for your reply. I have also contacted ACAS who has said very much the same as yourself.
