Letter giving an employee a one-off holiday increase because of the way Easter bank holidays fall in 2016 and 2017

Author: Stephen Simpson

When to use this model holiday letter

Use this model letter to inform employees whose contracts of employment state that they are entitled to "20 days' holiday plus bank holidays" of a one-off increase in their annual leave entitlement where your organisation operates a holiday year of 1 April to 31 March.

As there are only six bank holidays from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2017, employers in this position should give employees a one-off increase to avoid going below the statutory minimum holiday entitlement.
