work changing holiday

our holiday year ends Dec 31, work have just informed us (mid november) that this year we can't carry any holiday forward but have to use it or lose it.
Can this do this at such short notice?

That happened at my work once. Everybody immediately put in holiday forms and they realised that they couldn't have that many people on holiday at the same time so allowed it to be carried until the following Easter and then no more carrying forward after that.

Put a holiday form in to use all your excess holiday and see what happens.

Are you sure this isn't already company policy which over the years has been conveniently ignored? Carrying over holiday should be very much the exception rather than the norm and should only amount to a day or two anyway so how many people is this actually going to affect?

I expect that your terms and conditions (contract) already state that you can't carry holiday over (as Still said) so they are just enforcing it this year.

Get your holiday requests in ASAP!

We can carry forward a small amount, and cash in a certain number of days as well, but must have taken the legal minimum.

The US employees have been allowed to carry forward huge amounts - they save it for sick leave, or because they only have a weeks notice period, and its caused problems as it has to be treated as a cash liability
