What if I need staff to work on bank holidays?

You can just give your staff 28 days holiday, with no entitlement to paid bank holidays off.

This is the best way to go if you need cover 7 days a week and have your staff working shifts, as is usual in hospitality and leisure.

If they want a bank holiday off, and they are rota’d to work, they have to use some of their holiday entitlement to take the time off – if you agree of course!
