How much holiday leave are employees entitled to?

Paid annual leave is a legal right that an employer must provide. Holiday pay is worked out according to the kind of hours someone works and how they’re paid for the hours.

This includes:

  • full-time workers,
  • part-time workers,
  • agency workers,
  • workers working irregular shifts, and
  • casual workers including those on zero-hours contracts.

Workers are entitled to a week’s pay for each week of statutory leave that they take. 

You can calculate holiday entitlement for a full year and part of a leave year (if the job started or finished part way through the year) using this calculator: Calculate holiday entitlement – GOV.UK (

For further information on holiday entitlement see: Holiday entitlement: Holiday pay – GOV.UK (
