How Much Holiday Do I Have To Give My Staff?

Article Written by Sue Berry on 24th March 2015. Revised 23rd July 2017.

You can pay your staff as much holiday as you wish, however there is a statutory minimum that every employee has a right to.

You must pay a minimum of 5.6 weeks paid annual leave (this can include Bank Holidays). This equates to 28 days for someone who works full time.

A part-time employee is also entitled to 5.6 weeks of holiday. But the allocation is calculated on a pro-rata basis according to the number of hours or days worked.

Your staff accrue paid holiday as soon as they start work.
