Question: What is Holiday Pay?

Answer: Holiday pay is the pay you receive when you take your holidays:

  • The Working Time Directive states you are entitled to 20 days holiday paid at “normal pay”;

  • You are entitled to a further 8 days under the Working Time Regulations. These days paid at “basic pay”;

  • Normal can include overtime payments and allowances.
