Module 10 – Know Your Rights
If an employee has been working less than a year, then they aren’t entitled to annual holidays, but their employer may let them take some of their annual holidays in advance.
If an employee's job ends before they become entitled to annual holidays (and the employer has not been paying annual holidays as paid-as-you-earn) the employer must pay out any outstanding annual holidays at 8% of the employee's total before-tax earnings from the time they started the job to the end.
Sick leave is paid time off work if an employee, their spouse, partner, dependent child, or other person who depends on them is sick or injured.
An employer may request proof that an employee is sick once they have been sick for three or more consecutive days.
