I work for a cleaning company and we have contracted our cleaners to work at a school. I'm new to doing wages and I've come across a dispute. The recent school holiday just gone, my employer has stated they do not get paid bank holiday pay when they not working during school holidays. They get their holiday pay which adds to 20 days. The only bank holiday pay they get will be the May Bank Holiday one as it is during school term time.
My question is are they entitled to BH pay even when they are not working in the holidays?
My understanding is they are entitled to 28 days holiday regardless which inc. BH.
Some words of wisdom would come in very handy please.
