We have an employee with whom it has been agreed can work a 35 hour week over 4 days (Tues-Friday) to accomodate their needs for flexible working. However, what was not discussed at the time of application for flexible working with the Line Manager was how Bank Holidays would be calculated. As this employee works from Tuesay to Friday she has not been getting “paid” for Bank Holidays that fall on a Monday over and above her 35 hour pay, as her 35 hours fall outside of this day. The employee has therefore been recieving 35 hours pay but asks the question as to whether or not she should also be getting a day in lieu for “missing” the Bank Holiday. I would very much like to hear of others who have succeeded in implementing a way that is fair and reasonable in thier own organisations.
