I am working for a South African company. I'll be moving back to the UK later this year. The plan is for me to continue to work for them, as they will be opening a UK office.
I'm currenlty working 5 days / 40 hours per week and will continue to do so.
At the moment in terms of South African labour law, I am only entitled to 15 working days paid holiday per year (21 consecutive days, incl. weekends).
When I move to the UK I will be entitled to 28 days paid holiday per year. My question is this: Are the 28 days calculated as consecutive days like in South Africa (and therefore include weekends)? In other words, do I count the Saturdays and Sundays in between or only the 5 working days per week?
If they are opening a UK office your boss needs to take advice on UK employment law more generally, as is it likely that there are many other additional/different obligations, not just a bit more holiday.
