It’s that time of year when many of us are heading off for a holiday, but do you know what your statutory rights are in relation to paid holiday? You might not think you get any! Or you might be missing out because you haven’t been claiming it! Well think again because it’s very likely you have a statutory right to paid holiday, even if you are a temporary worker.
To demystify this subject, we brought in employment law expert Paul Chamberlain, who very kindly talked us through how paid holiday works in practical terms for temporary and agency workers. It’s well worth a listen to find out:
- What is the holiday entitlement for agency and temporary workers;
- How can someone working on a series of temporary assignments receive their holiday;
- What is the difference between rolled up and accrued holiday;
- Understanding if the advertised pay rate includes holiday when comparing temporary roles;
- Whether Brexit might affect future statutory holiday provision here in the UK?
This is a brief discussion on quite a complex topic, so we’ve deliberately keep it short & sweet – just 20 minutes of your time could prevent you being ripped off!
