Final phase of increase of minimum annual leave entitlement to 28 days comes into effect in April 2009
The final phase of the increase in minimum annual leave entitlement occurs in April 2009. The minimum will become 28 days in total (including bank holidays) for employees working 5 days per week (5.6 weeks per year.)

If you already provide this level of entitlement for your staff, you will not need to award any increases. However, if your staff work part-time it is important to check that they get a pro-rated amount of leave – particularly if they currently only get the bank holidays off on those days that they normally work. You may also need to make adjustments to any carry over arrangements as all 28 days will be expected to be taken in the leave year. Only contractual leave above this level will be allowed to be carried forward. Get in touch if you want to book a review of your leave arrangements to ensure that you comply with the new entitlements.
