Leave entitlement

Is there a generic entitlement for annual leave for all caretakers/site managers in each district or county? What should a site manager/caretaker be entotled to after 26 years service?

Re: Leave entitlement

Not sure the answer to your initial question, but I started out on 22 days (plus bank holidays), and was given an extra 5 taking me up to 27 a year after I hit the 5 year mark.

Fortunately it was picked up on an audit, as nobody (myself included) had realised it was due to change!!

Re: Leave entitlement

the short answer is:-

There is a minimum (Statutory) number of days holiday you're entitled to.
As a full time worker this is 5.6 weeks (about 28 days)
This can, i believe, include bank holidays.

Any more than this will be part of your contracted terms and conditions.

Clicky

For the record i am on 30 days + bank hols, after 10 years in Surrey

Re: Leave entitlement

Think I was on 28 days INCLUDING Bank Holidays and that never changed even after 28 years.

Re: Leave entitlement

24 days plus bank Holidays at almost years in, its nice to have them but I usuallybsruggle to use them so end up carrying over 5 of what I dont use, this year we have been allowed to carry over 8 days so I currently have 32 days to take, I really to plan out the breaks and use them up before contractors get booked in and I end up feeling like I cant take holiday.

Re: Leave entitlement

Here it is 22 days plus bank holidays. All must be taken in "holidays". It must include the gap between 26th Dec and NYE (total closure for 3 days they say). Increases by 5 days after 5 years but not again. Been here just under 10 years, so 27 days plus bank holidays.

Re: Leave entitlement

When I was hired HR said I was part time so said that I was only entitled to 16 days a year + bank holidays. My argument was although I only worked 27.5 hours a week they were over 5 days. As you can imagine it worked out to 3 weeks a year because I needed to use 5 days to get a week off. The government website has a holiday calculator and it told me I was allowed 28 days but these can include bank holidays.

Re: Leave entitlement

Times change. I remember when a teacher retired after 35+ years at the same school the HT said at his farewell speech that he had been through his personnel file and found the letter he had sent to the governors back in the early 80s to thank them for granting him one day's paternity leave.
