Your employer may also let you go on holiday or Christmas. For example, the store may be closed for these days. Your employer can decide when some or all of the leave should be taken. For example, they may require that you take part of your vacation to cover the holidays, or the entire company to take a vacation during a Christmas stop. If you take your leave, make sure you have given the correct notification to your employer and your employer must make sure that they are paying you the right wage. Find out what notice you need to give and how the leave money is calculated. Remember that holidays could be included in your right to paid leave – you can check your employment contract to find out. Under that case, it is necessary to change the calculation of leave pay for certain leave, in accordance with the provisions of the ICJC labour regulatory agreement, to include average overtime (over 12 full weeks) in WR.4 and taxable travel allowance in accordance with WR5.1. An IR 2015.06 proclamation was issued, in which details of the revision of the labour rules agreement were announced. It is recognised that after the general election, the UK Government will amend the provisions of the UK Working Time Regulation and that the agreed amendments could be amended. The total amount of leave pay will continue to be paid at a rate of 0.558 days per week of service. Viz. 29 days a year.
The “euro” element will be at a rate of 0.404 days per week of service. Viz. 21 days under the CIJC agreement. They can only be paid on public holidays if they are part of the unsaserated leave entitlement, if you leave your job. If they are included in your right to leave, you still build paid days off for public holidays: if a holiday falls on one of your normal working days and you do not wish to take the day off, you can ask your employer if you can work on the holiday and take another day off instead. As a general rule, employers treat the first 20 days off each year as “euro” days and the rest in the traditional way. However, for reasons of administrative friendliness and transparency, the ICJC has agreed to treat the 21 days of industrial holidays as euro days and public holidays in the traditional way.
