There is no legal right to pay employees over public bank holidays. Employers can if they wish to do so, by counting it as part of the employee’s statutory annual leave.
Over the Christmas and New Year period there are three public bank holidays in England and Wales.
This year’s Christmas and New Year bank holidays are :
25th December – Christmas Day
26th December – Boxing Day
1st January – New Year’s Day
We will be closing on Monday 24th December 2018 from 12.00 pm and will reopen on Thursday 3rd January at 8.30 am.
If you need to contact us anytime while we are closed your call will be automatically forwarded to our legal helpline Rradar.
