Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Yes under the Working Time Regulations you are entitled to be paid for accrued holiday from the first day of employment.
You should write to the employer to ask for payment and if it is not paid you can take it further by engaging ACAS Early Concilliation.
You will find the details at http://www.acas.org.uk/earlyconciliation
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question please do take time to rate my answer.
Thank you and all the best.
Thanks for this... based on the information I gave can you confirm how much holiday entitlement I have accrued in my time with the company.
Yes you need to divide 23 days by 52 and multiply by 8 weeks which makes 3.5 days. If bankholidays are paid in addition then the fact that you have taken one day bank holiday is fine.
Hope that helps.
Thank you... one more question. Holiday entitlement is not effected by still being in the normal 3 month probationary period?? There was nothing in my contract to say this was the case.
no not at all the Working Time Regulations make it statutory that it is payable even in a probationary period.
Great thank you.
No problem. Do please remember to rate my answer and do come back to me in the future if you need to. All the best.
