Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Are you an employee or self employed?
As an employee, by law you are entitled to at least 28 days of holiday a year, if you are a full time employee. If you work less than that, your entitlement will be reduced pro rata. So let’s say you work 2 days a week, then your entitlement would be 2/5 of 28 days, which is 11.2 days. The employer can tell you when to take your holidays or refuse requests by you to take specific days off but they must still give you the entitlement you get by law. If they do not and you are forced to leave or they sack you because of it then you can claim automatic unfair dismissal. Apart from that you are free to raise a formal grievance at any point – this is a formal complaint made internally to the employer. If you have to make the legal claim as mentioned above, then this is made to the employment tribunal within 3 months of your employment finishing, whether you resign or are dismissed.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you

you can go back to the start of your employment if needed, even if it was a different holiday year. If the grievance is ignored you can just make the claim in the tribunal to pursue the holidays you are owed or as mentioned you can resign and claim constructive dismissal as well, for example if you believe you cannot continue working there as a result
