Ben Jones :

Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What is the reason for the difference in holidays?

JACUSTOMER-efdf2jl3- :

No reason given. He says that the arrangements between him the employee can not be disclose

Ben Jones :

This in itself is not illegal. Not all employees have to be given the same allowance in holidays. It is perfectly legal for employees hat do the same or different hours to have different and disproportionate allowances to holiday. The law only requires employers to give their employees the legal minimum entitlement they get by law. This can be calculated here:

Ben Jones :

Apart from that the employer is free to have different holiday entitlements to its employees I'm afraid
