We are trying to devise a suitable policy for all our office staff as we are getting so much grief over the holidays staff want to take because there is lack of clarity on the old contracts we had drawn up.
I am in the process of drafting a new policy out and having scoured through the internet for any links and/or guidance I find there isn’t much out there.
Some of our specific concerns relate to the following: holidays for long overseas travel (eg greater than 2 weeks), unused holidays by year end, half day holidays and then wanting to make up time,compulsory holidays during certain tail end part of the year which some staff are not happy to take whilst others are, etc.
I know I am not an expert at drafting such policies and I will appreciate it if someone can point me in the right direction/link on the website on this matter or send me a rough copy of what they use in their office.
All help will be appreciated.
