Managing your employees’ holiday requests

15th July, 2013

According to a survey published by the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (“CIPP”), September is the most popular month of the year to go on holiday. It has been reported that almost a quarter of those who took part in the CIPP 2012 Holiday Survey (23%) plan to take their holidays in the month of September. This was followed by 17% in August and 13.6% in June and July.

During the summer months employers are tasked with managing periods of absence strategically. There are a number of issues which may arise when managing holiday requests. Some examples are as follows:

• Calculating pay for casual workers;

• Statutory holiday entitlement;

• Periods of sickness absence and how that affects holiday entitlement; and

• Dealing with employees who attempt to change their holiday dates with short notice.

In order to manage annual leave effectively, you should have in place proper procedures, robust contractual clauses and related policies which clearly set out the rules in respect of holiday entitlements and handling requests. For advice or further information, please contact Claire Brook on 01244 405575 or send an email to [email protected].
