Workers to receive more paid holidays


Workers to receive more paid holidays
UK workers are set to receive more paid holiday following upcoming changes to Working Time Regulations, due to come into effect in October 2007.

Paid leave entitlement will increase from four weeks at present to 4.8 weeks, rising to 5.6 weeks as of October 2008, according to Workplace Law. This will be subject to a maximum of 28 days.

Changes to legislation are intended to match employee bank holiday entitlement. As such, employers who currently offer four weeks paid leave, as stipulated under the existing Working Time Regulations, will be required to re-calculate holiday entitlement.

Some concern has arisen that this could be complicated by the fact that companies will be part of the way through the holiday year, making it more difficult to calculate new paid leave entitlement.

Further calculations to the same effect will need to be made in October 2008, when the entitlement increases again.
