How do I know if they’re entitled to holiday pay?

All workers are entitled to holiday pay.

That includes employees, agency workers, casual workers, apprentices and zero-hours workers.

In fact, even if someone is classed as self-employed, they might still be a worker. If they do the work themselves and there’s nobody else to do it (no right of substitution), they’re a worker, and if they aren’t doing the work as part of their own business, they’re definitely a worker.

And remember that holiday means “paid time off” not just time off.

Part time workers are not automatically “on holiday” when they are not working.

Part time staff have a right to the paid holiday, pro rata their actual worked hours.

Not just their contracted hours.
