    Thumbs Down government holiday increment

    does anyone know the rights regarding this? the government has told employers that employees should be given 24 days per annum.
    now my query is, my contract states i get 20 days plus 8 public hols paid..so with this new legislation am i correct saying i should now get 24 plus 8? the reason i ask is that my employers have seen fit to take 4 of the public hols and add them to my annual entitlement so no i get 24 plus 4 public..surely this should be a change of contract which i should have re-signed..but can they even do this? not bad for an oil company with a turn over of 300million last year...mind you this is the same company which handed out an Aberdeen roll (buttery) as a christmas bonus..
    new employment this year i think
    My ambition is to live forever,.. so far so good

    i think the law is 24 days including public holidays so unless they have put your days holiday down then they havent done anything wrong im afraid,
    im sure you will get more holiday depending on how long you have been working there tho?

    A contract (employment in this case) doesn't have to be signed to be changed.

    If you take your hol's in this manner then by your actions you are agreeing to a change in your contract.

    Handy hint - if you take on extra duties at work then you have changed your contract of employment and the boss can insist that you continue to do this work. So be careful out there.
    It is only when the last tree is felled, the last animal killed and the last fish hauled from the sea that we will realise we can't eat money.
