Guidance released on new Holiday Pay and Entitlement reforms

Government Guidance released on Holiday pay and entitlement reforms from 1 January 2024

The Government has released new guidance to cover the latest holiday pay and entitlement reforms. It sets out the changes to the Working Time Regulations which the government introduced on 1 January 2024 (and so some might say the guidance would have been helpful prior to then!) and provides employers with clarification on what the new Regulations means for:

  • irregular hours workers and part-year workers
  • carry over of leave
  • carry over of leave affected by Covid-19
  • rates of holiday pay and annual leave; and
  • rolled-up holiday pay

The full guidance is here.
