Is a bank holiday just paid at the employee’s normal rate of pay?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.

Ok thanks. The bank holiday pay would depend on their rate at the time they take their holidays. So if the holiday is taken after the pay rise was issued you would have to pay them on that rate. Similarly, if the bank holiday was taken before the pay rise, it would be paid at the old rate. The main thing is that if it is taken during furlough then it is not the reduced furlough amount that is used, but their regular pay, which they would have received had they not been furloughed.

Does this answer your query?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I take it then that we need to pay the difference between the Furlough daily rate and their normal daily rate

Yes that is correct, only for the holiday day of course. Does this clarify things a bit more for you?

thank you

You are most welcome
