No idea what our holiday terms are as we are TUPE and been working at the company a number of years.

Colleagues think as we usually get 25 days plus bank holiday of, than we will get an extra day as paid leave.

im thinking it’s going to be taken of the 25 days.

hR have just said they will add it to our HR system like they do every other bank holiday.

Ours was added as an extra day - so an additional paid bank holiday as our company chose to close for the day, this was not taken from any other allowances and everyone will be paid as an additional day. I figured if your company chose to close, you'll be paid without being penalised in losing holiday.

Thanks, that makes sense. What about people who don’t usually work Mondays, such as part timers, will they still be given a day off

Part timers should be given the pro-rata equivalent added to their holiday allowance. So if they work half of full time hours, the should get half a days holiday

As standard I have to work all BHs and get the day back in leiu so this year I get 29 days holiday one for the jubilee, one for her funeral and the other standard 8 BHs and 20 normal days.
All on standard pay .

We are told we could be off Monday if we were due to work and wanted to observe the national day of mourning, it wouldnt be added to system, had to be that Monday only, and it was not a floating day or extra day of annual leave.

Anyone who was off sick, didnt work Mondays normally, or had already booked as a holiday would not get to take a day at another time. Those asked to work would be compensated.

Fair enough compromise for an exceptional circumstance.

My research online suggested that it depends on how your contract is written.
If it states that you get 20 (for example) days holiday PLUS bank holidays then you should be paid. If it states 28 days holiday including bank holidays then your employer doesn't have a legal obligation to have given you the day off or to pay you if you did get it off.

Are work as just said the office is closed, hence ambiguity.

Yep.

I don’t know which we have as I’ve worked at the company for a number of years. No job adverts online show the holiday allowance for the company.
