'One in twelve workers' not taking full holiday entitlement

30 Jul 2018

With the holiday season now in full swing, a recent study has suggested that over a million employees do not currently take their full holiday entitlement.

In addition, according to the report from the TUC, 1.2 million workers do not receive any paid leave.

The law entitles full-time employees to a minimum of 28 days’ annual leave, including public holidays. 

However, the TUC has highlighted the fact that many employees do not end up taking the leave they are entitled to, for a variety of reasons, and is calling on the government to enforce holiday entitlements, including granting compensation for any holidays not taken.

The trade union body is warning that such employees are at risk of ‘burnout’, with corresponding risks to their mental well-being and productivity.

Commenting on the news, a Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) spokesperson said: ‘Through our Good Work Plan, we’re providing new rights to millions of workers, with holiday pay to be enforced for vulnerable workers. We’ve now consulted on this and will outline plans in due course’.
