What terms relating to holiday must be included in the written statement of particulars?
The employee's entitlement to holiday, including any entitlement to paid time off on bank holidays, must be included in the written statement of employment particulars. The written statement must also include sufficient details to allow the employee's entitlement to holiday pay to be precisely calculated, including any entitlement to accrued holiday pay on the termination of employment.
Under the Working Time Regulations 1998 (SI 1998/1833), all workers are entitled to 5.6 weeks' paid holiday in any leave year, which may include bank holidays. Employers can fix their own conditions for any additional contractual leave that they offer over and above the 5.6 weeks' statutory minimum.
