Employees are entitled to a minimum amount of annual leave for each year of employment. The minimum amount of annual leave will depend on the length of employment with your employer, ranging from 7 days of annual leave (if you have been employed for more than one year, but less than three years) and 14 days (if you have been employed for more than nine years). However, an employer may choose to give you additional days of annual leave at their discretion in accordance with your employment contract.
During your annual leave, your daily wage is calculated as your average wage over the last year. Employees may choose to receive payment instead of taking holidays (i.e. payment in lieu). Employees are also allowed to rollover any unused statutory annual leave from the past 12 months – however, contractual annual leave is subject to your terms of employment. This is where we can help.
