In Brief: Acas Guidance on Holiday and Holiday Pay

The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (Acas) has useful guidance for employers puzzling over staff holiday pay entitlements.

The guidance leaflet gives a summary of holiday entitlements, setting out:

  • the right to annual leave;
  • when a leave year starts;
  • how and when workers can take leave; and
  • how to calculate holiday pay.

There is also a Q & A section that covers issues such as:

  • public holidays;
  • part-time workers and holidays;
  • leave years that start at different times; and
  • accrual systems.

The guidance is available on the Acas website.
