Increase in minimum annual leave proposed

17 02 2007

The DTI has proposed an increase in minimum holiday entitlement under the Working Time Regulations 1998 from 20 days to 28 days by adding bank holidays.

Entitlement will rise from 20 to 24 days on 1st October 2007, and from 24 to 28 days on 1st October 2008.

Consultation is underway 

Peppone comments 

I suspect that this change is due to some unscrupulous employers taking advantage (as documented on the BBC news site here) of a loop hole in the “The Working Time Regulations ” and counting bank holidays as part of the minimum entitlement.

Thanks to Russell Jones & Walker for the tip
