If your staff have agreed to do a 4 day week instead of the normal 5 day week for a temporary period of 4 months what happens to their annual leave and Bank holidays? Normally if someone works 4 days it would be 4/5ths for everything, but as it is a temporary period, does their annual leave stay the same as it was in their initial contract? Also are they entitled to paid Bank Holidays during this time.
I have been told by a friend that if it is a temporary situation then their original contract which says they are entitled to 28 days, including bank holidays, stays the same and you do not have to make a change as you would if it was a permanet situation.
I would be grateful for confirmation of this please. Thank you
