Holiday pay if it is not taken is payed at the regular contracted rate.
So if you work 52 weeks and have a right to 4 weeks holiday, you will earn wages for 56 weeks.
Some workers, for example, seasonal workers, have contracts, which say they only work for part of the year. For example, your contract may run for 42 weeks out of 52, and your employer tells you to take unpaid leave for the remaining ten weeks before you start working for them again. In this situation your holiday rights depend on whether you have a contract of employment or not, and whether it continues during the time you are not working.
The rules on working out your holiday if you do not work for the whole year are complicated and you should seek the help of an experienced adviser, for example, at a Citizens Advice Bureau.
