FPB: Staff should be getting full holiday entitlement


FPB: Staff should be getting full holiday entitlement
Employees need to ensure they are being allowed their full holiday entitlement, the Forum of Private Business (FPB) has said.

According to the body, confusion may have arisen over the subject following the changes implemented on October 1st when annual leave went up from four weeks to 4.8 weeks.

"Holiday entitlement has become very complicated as the variations and permutations that have to be taken into account are endless," Philip Moody of the organisation warned.

Mr Moody, the FPB's senior member services representative, added "Questions on employee holidays have become some of the most frequent received by the FPB's member helpline."

Furthermore, the minimum statutory entitlement will again increase in April 2009 to 5.6 days for those who work a five day week. This equates to 28 days a year.

Established in 1977, the FPB represents 25,000 private businesses in the UK, which employ more than 600,000 people.
