I get the feeling that this may open a real can of worms.... But here goes... As an employee of the RNR, we are classed as a part time workers (I assume), and thus entitled to PAID holidays under the Working Time Regulations 1998. So why arenâ€™t we getting it? I'm sure someone will mention our Bounty payment as our holiday payment instead of actual holidays... But from the direct.gov.uk website it says an employer can't do this. "The entitlement to take four weeksâ€™ holiday in any holiday year, as described above, means that none of the four-week statutory holiday entitlement can be â€˜bought outâ€™, instead of actual leave being taken." This is also lifted from the direct.gov website on holidays: "A part time worker should be treated no less favourably than an equivalent full-timer." So... The question is... Are my assumptions correct? And should we be rushing to our JPA terminals to book our holidays (Lets assume that JPA is working, and can cope with Reservists taking holidays, getting paid correctly, or even exist!).
