My gf is a part time dental nurse and her boss has just given her a new contract to sign. He states that shes entitled to 7 days that she can pick, 3 days he can pick and bank holidays shes entitled to. Now as far as i was aware, your boss was not allowed to tell you when you can take days in that way. Is this true??

afraid not:

 

The basics of holiday rights

 

There is a minimum right to paid holiday, but your employer may offer more than this. The main things you should know about holiday rights are that:

  • you are entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks paid annual leave (28 days for someone working five days a week)
  • part-time workers are entitled to the same level of holiday pro rata (so 5.6 times your usual working week, eg 22.4 days for someone working four days a week)
  • you start building up holiday as soon as you start work
  • your employer can control when you take your holiday
  • you get paid your normal pay for your holiday
  • when you finish a job, you get paid for any holiday you have not taken
  • bank and public holidays can be included in your minimum entitlement
  • you continue to be entitled to your holiday leave throughout your ordinary and additional maternity leave and paternity and adoption leave

Sorry Pete - that is correct - the employer can dictate when and how holidays are taken, but is she getting the full entitlement?

 

You say 7 that your GF can choose, 3 that the employer can choose plus Bank Holidays....she is entitled to 5.6 normal working weeks weeks including the bank holidays.
