If they don’t have a written contract, what holiday pay do I have to pay?

If they don’t have a written contract, what holiday pay do I have to pay?

If you’ve got workers who don’t have a written employment contract, there’s a few questions you probably have.

It all comes back to what their rights are when it comes to employment law.

But when it comes to holidays, what’s the score?

First thing’s first, any worker you hire has rights under employment law. And you as the employer also have responsibilities when it comes to what you’re legally required to pay in holiday pay.

Because they’re working for you without a written contract, there’s no official document specifying certain terms of employment. That means the assumption is that they’ll be entitled to the legal minimum for holiday pay and other requirements.
