A Late Holiday

Following the introduction of increased statutory holiday pay at the beginning of October, ACAS (the government’s Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service) has produced a leaflet setting out the new entitlement.

It explains:

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


It also includes a question and answer section covering topics such as:

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