I work in an organisation where the staff are required to work a five day rota encompassing a seven day working week.

Over Christmas we are closed as a business to the public on Christmas Day and Boxing Day, however a number of staff will be expected to attend work for a couple of hours in the morning to feed and clean the animals, for this time worked they will ccrue lieu hours. On the Monday and Tuesday, whilst it is a bank holiday all staff are expected to work as normal and will not accrue lieu hours.

All staff are contractually entitled to 20 days holiday and 8 days bank holiday.

Should they accrue additional days bank holiday on the Monday and Tuesday for working on a bank holiday, thus being entitled to 4 days bank holiday during this period? However should their normal day off fall on these two days, do they then loose the additional bank holidays?

Any help would be appreciated.
