Additional Holiday Pay


Employees must receive their normal pay when they take annual leave to ensure they are not deterred from taking holiday. This means normal overtime (and some other additional payments) should be included in the calculation of an employee's holiday pay.

This requirement only applies to the first 4 weeks of an employee’s holiday entitlement. This is equivalent to 140 hours for full-time staff at Levels 3 and above, and 144 hours for Level 1B-2B (pro rata for part-time staff).
