  1. You didn't happen to work for a certain electrical retailer did you? The only reason I ask is because your story sounds familliar.
  2. Thanks Guys. I have worked for my employer for over 18 months, the letter I sent was not a grievance letter but it was a request for the company to state exactly how they work out our holiday entitlement.
  3. Well I'm back again for a bit of advice. You may remember, my employer is only giving it's full time (39 hour, 5 day week) staff 4.2 weeks holliday rather than the legal requirement of 5.6 weeks (Yes we DO WORK BANK HOLIDAYS).

  8. No because it's retail we have to work bank holidays (just fininshed today (August bank holiday)). Thanks for the link.
  9. Hi new to the site and this is my first thread. I work for a well known retailer (Won't mention who). It has recently been brought to my attention that the goverment has increased the minimum holiday entitlement to 5.6 weeks. This can mean that bank holidays can be taken into your entitlement if you do not normaly work on a bank holiday (e.g my wifes place of work is closed on bank holidays, hence she is not at work so each bank holiday in the year comes off her anual entitlement leaving her with approximatly 4 weeks to choose from.)
