- April 29th, Bank Holliday Forum Ride?
if your contract states you get the normal 8 bank holidays off, do they have to honour camerons jolly holiday? or would it be entirely up to the employer as the contract states 8 days not 8 days plus more if the government decides so?
i only ask such a dumb queston as i’m pretty certain my boss will find anyway he can to make people work itPosted 7 years agoBlackhoundSubscriber
Saw an article at the weekend that suggested that the cost of the extra bank holiday to the UK would be £2bn in lost tax revenues to the exchequer based on an average day.
Being retired I will stay at home and go away for a few days when everybody is back at work. I will go for a long ride to avoid the coverage though. Or join a forum ridePosted 7 years agostumpyjonSubscriber
It will make no difference – your contaract decides what your holidays are not announcing a “public holiday”
Does put employers in an awkward position though, it’s very easy for Cameron to be everyone’s mate and annouce an extra days holiday but then expect employers to stand the costs.
That said I’ll quite happily take the extra days holiday.Posted 7 years agoIdleJonSubscriber

So, as an employer, who pays ME for the lost time?
£600 a day billable time x 3 employees…
Just out of curiosity, do you pay your employees for working 29th February on leap years, or do you as the employer get their efforts for free?
I had a long discussion about this in work on the last leap day – I wasn’t being paid extra……Posted 7 years agosingletrackmindMember
So if i book the week before and after easter off work I can get 17 days away from the madness and only burn 7 days holidays . Thats Mon- Thur Good friday=BH, Then Easter Mon = BH , So Tue / Wed / Thur normal Fri= Royal skive day , followed by May Day BH Monday.Posted 7 years ago
