Annual holidays entitlements

Employees are entitled to four weeks’ annual holidays each year when they have worked for their employer for 12 months.

When employees can receive pay-as-you-go (PAYG) holiday pay with their regular pay instead of taking annual holidays

If an employee works so intermittently or irregularly that it is impracticable for the employer to provide them with four weeks’ annual holidays (and employees on fixed term agreements for less than 12 months) they may agree to be paid annual holiday pay with their pay. For more information see Pay-as-you-go for fixed-term or changing work patterns.
