6th May 2009
From 1 April 2009, the statutory annual
leave entitlement under the
Working Time Regulations 1998 has increased from 4.8 weeks to 5.6 weeks
(with a maximum statutory entitlement of 28 days). Further, the option
to replace additional annual leave with a payment in lieu, has been
scraped, except where employment is terminated.
However, your leave year may have started
before 1 April 2009. If so,
your annual leave will be worked out on a pro-rata basis - 4.8 weeks
pro rata for the period before 1 April 2009 and 5.6 weeks pro rata for
the period from 1 April 2009.
Employers are under a duty to notify their
employees of this change if they have not already done so.
