Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
Please provide some more details of your circumstances.
Is a bank holiday just paid at the employee’s normal rate of pay?
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?
Yes that is correct, only for the holiday day of course. Does this clarify things a bit more for you?
You are most welcome
