Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello does the contract state that the employee may be required to give notice or not?
I am sorry I mean to say does the contract say that the employee may be required to take holiday in the notice period?
Hi, the contract says the employee must give 4 weeks notice, but does not state the employee may be required to take holiday in the notice period.
Hi you can require an employee to take holiday at a particular time under the working time regulations but you must give double the number of days notice of the days you requie them to take. You therefore need to give 16 working days notice to require them to take 8 days leave. It is therefore not possilbe to require them to take all of the days holiday in the notice period. They may agree to it though or you could require them to take some days under this rule and pay them for the rest at the end of the period.
