Understanding UK Holiday Entitlement Legislation

In the UK, almost everyone classed as a worker is legally entitled to 5.6 weeks’ paid holiday per year. This statutory leave entitlement applies to a wide variety of employment types, including agency workers, those with irregular hours, and those on zero-hours contracts.

The statutory annual leave entitlement for most workers who work a 5-day week is at least 28 days’ paid annual leave a year. However, part-time workers are also entitled to at least 5.6 weeks’ paid holiday, though this will amount to fewer than 28 days.

People working irregular hours (like shift workers or term-time workers) are entitled to paid time off for every hour they work. The calculator can be especially helpful for such workers as it provides an estimate based on days or hours worked in an average week.

The statutory paid holiday entitlement is limited to 28 days. Even staff working 6 days a week are only entitled to 28 days’ paid holiday. It's important to note that bank holidays do not have to be given as paid leave, and an employer can choose to include bank holidays as part of a worker’s statutory annual leave.

Employers can choose to offer more leave than the legal minimum, applying their own rules to the extra leave. For example, an employee might need to be employed for a certain amount of time before they become entitled to it.

Workers also have the right to holiday pay, accrue holiday entitlement during maternity, paternity and adoption leave, accrue holiday entitlement while off work sick, and request holiday at the same time as sick leave. If a worker believes their right to leave and pay are not being met, there are a number of ways to resolve the dispute.
