the written contract started 7 december, thenI worked 21 december and the company closed from 22nd december till 4 january, i´ve been told the company have to pay me all those days from 22nd till 4 january, here I had right in the written contract only totwo days of holidays, then i was told the company have to pay me as contract say, contract say from 6 00 till 16 30, and 2 saturdays per month from 7 00 till 13 00, then i was told company have to pay me those days I did not work after 21st december at a rate of 10.70 pounds per hour, 9.75 hours per day, even if i DID NOT WORK, company closed doors for holidays, and due i have right only to two days of holidays in writen contract only in that period are only 2 days of holidays , did they advice me wrongly?
Solicitor: James Mather,

The company do not have to pay you for days that you do not work.You are entitled to 5.6 weeks paid holiday per year which accrues as soon as you start your job. The “leave” year starts on 1 October unless there is something specified in the contract differently. Many contracts specify 1 January to 31 December.If you had worked at the company for 2 months at the time of the Christmas break, then you would have been entitled to be paid for 2/12ths of your leave entitlement. I accept that the company was closed, and therefore, working was an impossibility. There is no absolute right to have even Christmas Day and Boxing Day off, they actually come out of the annual holiday entitlement.

Can you send me a link please to the other question dealt with by the other expert because I would like to see the full thread?Ultimately, you cannot beat them with a stick if they simply will not pay you, and you have no option but to take them to court or the tribunal.

no, i dont want give you the link for the moment, but if the company close for holidays from 22nd december till 4 december, i HAVE A WORK CONTRACT STARTING 7 DECEMBER AND i DONT HAVE ENOUGH HOLIDAYS, JUST 2 OR 4 DAYS, they dont have to pay me all those working days?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the other solicitor say, those days I did not work should be treated as holidays, but I started working 7 december, then I accumulated only 2 days of holidays, then he say they can´t leave me with no pay , that those days the company closed because holidays should be paid to me even if I dont have accumulated holidays
HE SAID TOO THIS
you need to check the contract - if it says that you have to take these days as holidays then you will have to take the from your holiday allowance and be paid for them normally, if it does not say that then you should be paid as normal without losing your holiday allowance.
