Hi
Customer
If I resign on 21 Dec and I have 171 annual leave hours but my work anniversary is 13 Jan, am I entitled to any leave hours. my notice period is 4 weeks
Customer
I have taken public holidays during the year (eg easter and labour weekend so am guessing I will need to pay these back?)

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

You will get the proportion of leave owed as at the day you finish work. You will also get statutory holidays. You don’t need to repay the statutory holidays you have taken as they are in addition to annual leave
Customer
If I hand in my notice 22 dec, and my notice period is 4 weeks, does that mean that my final day would be 19 jan roughly? Or can I ask for earlier or later?

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

You can ask for your notice period to be part of your annual leave so you don’t have to go back. They may not agree but would still need to pay out your holiday pay when you finish
Customer
Thanks very much
