As of 1st April 2009 all employees will become entitled to 28 days leave each year. This is the final step in a process which has seen the entitlement rise in recent years from 20 days each year to 28 days each year.
This may have little practical impact for many employees who previously enjoyed 20 days annual leave plus local and statutory holidays. For most employees the statutory and local holidays when added to their 20 days will amount to at least 28 days each year.
Hopefully we can all put the extra days to good use.
