Holiday Pay Advice For Irish Businesses
Managing holiday entitlements and associated payments can be a complex issue for many businesses. How much holiday pay is an employee entitled to? What notice of intention to take holidays should an employee give you? What happens if I cannot grant this time off? How do I calculate holiday pay and the correct amount of time off for part-time staff? Who is entitled to benefit from the public holidays? How much annual leave or public holiday pay should I pay employees working irregular hours? An employer is expected to know the answer to these queries if and when an employee questions Company Policies or their actual entitlements.
A clear and well-defined holiday policy will address the concerns above and ensure that you do not run the risk of ending up in a situation where you have no staff left to run the business while they are all on holiday.
The law surrounding staff holidays can be difficult to navigate without expert help on your side – and mistakes can prove costly for your business. Our fully qualified and trained professionals will assist you with explaining and drafting a holiday policy to suit you and your business. They will also advise you on how to maintain records, and implement such policies to staff, taking the guesswork out of managing employee holiday entitlements.
Once your annual leave policies are up to date and in place, our 24-hour advice service can assist with any day-to-day queries about annual leave entitlements or pay and our online, HRIS tool, BrightHR, can help with calculating remaining leave entitlements for every employee and produce absence/holiday leave reports and planners to take away the pain of never-ending administration associated with holidays and public holidays.
