Holiday Entitlement

Avoid the holiday headache

Making sure employment contracts have clear guidance on holiday entitlement means everything is clear from the start and holiday issues should never present a problem for your business. Employees have a statutory right to paid holidays, but it’s the lack of detail in how these are presented to employees that can cause problems.

Thinking about the correct calculation of what should be paid for the holiday requested, notice time required, pay in lieu, mechanisms for granting and refusing holiday time and holidays during the first year of work can prevent future problems. DCL can help you calculate, set out and communicate your holiday entitlement rules, so holidays never become a headache.
