You get a minimum of 20 days per year pro rata. Some employers demand that you work a year before you can take any. If you leave in the interim then they have to pay your entitlement.

Most companies have a 90 day/3 month "probation" period. However if you are full time, some companies will pay that right away. Part time employee not always get holiday pay, even after their probation period.

You start accruing holiday the minute you begin a new job, although some companies restrict staff from taking holiday in their first 3 months. If you left within the first 3 months though the company would still have to pay you for any outstanding hols.

Since 1998, the law (Working Time Regulations) entitles UK workers to a minimum of four weeks' annual paid leave in each leave year. This minimum includes Bank Holidays but the position might change in future. You will start to 'earn' paid holiday entitlement as soon as you start your job. Your contract/terms of employment will spell out the details re pro-rating, when the leave year ends etc.

Part-time employees have a similar right, pro-rated to reflect the proportion of the time they are contracted to work.

All employees and workers are entitled to 4.8 weeks holiday per year.

60 to 90 days. If you have a "welcome packet" from the company check that or the handbook if you have one. But usually it ranges from 60 to 90 days.

In the U.S. there is no legal requirement to pay employees for a holiday. (Unless you work that day)

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

In the US at least, holiday pay isn't required by law but depends on company policy whether or not you get paid, and what the requirements are for you to be eligible.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No
