Areas of Law / Employment

I have an evening job doing ten hours’ office cleaning a week. I’ve worked for my employers for nearly 12 months, but they’re refusing me holiday pay. They say I’ve got it wrong and won’t be entitled to a holiday until June. Who can I contact to sort this out? The trouble is I may not be there much longer.

You haven’t got it wrong. You are entitled to 5.6 weeks’ holiday a year, which in your case will amount to 56 hours’ paid holiday. You should use your employers’ grievance procedure now to claim this holiday, since otherwise you could lose it:  there’s no right to carry holiday forward from one year to the next. If you leave with holiday owing you can claim the money through an employment tribunal or through the small claims court.
