I work two days per week in an office and theres only myself and the boss on the payroll

 

I have worked there since the start of 2014

 

I was told that they didnt do holiday pay

 

Now, there have been times when I have been off work the odd day and they have paid me, that was in 2014, in 2015 and 2016 they havent, I have never taken time off when busy, and only when really slack.

 

I keep getting told by friends I should get statutory holiday pay, and was pointed to the ukgov website, based on a two day week the entitlement should be 11.2 days annual leave.

 

I have asked the question to see if it can be applied, but I suspect I will be told to put up or leave.

 

Whats the general opinion on this matter?

that unless you are self employed, it is a statutory right.


Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Then you need to make sure that you get what you are entitled to. Every employee is entitled to paid holiday - as you have already estabished on the YouGov website

 

Your employer may claim that you are being paid extra to take account of holidays - but that is in itself unlawful. You must be allowed to take paid time away from the workplace


Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

so what?

you are entitled to 5.6 weeks paid holiday per year

 

 

so by working part time for 2 days/week you are entitled to 11 days paid leave at your normal daily rate.

 

 

If you want to take the money just name days that you dont normally work and then you will accrue the holiday a bit faster and be owed another half day!

 

claim the backpay as well.

put it in writing and quote the legislation so your boss doesnt say that it doesnt apply

What would happen if the boss paid the leave or told the OP to take off the 11 days which would be about 5 weeks and then asked her not to bother returning?

sorry - an ET, not small claims. potentially unfair dismissal.

TBH a very small employer wont be able to take the strain of an ET so using the correct wording and making sure that they know about the legislation to enforce your rights will make them consider any thoughts of revenge very carefully. If they see that you know your rights you are less likely to have them challenged arbitrarily
