Changes to Holiday Pay effective from 1st January 2011

​It is a requirement of the Working Time Regulations 1988 that flexible workers book holiday and get paid once they have taken it. Paying an element for annual leave in our hourly rate is no substitute for people actually having the time off so we intend to move to a claims based system which encourages flexible workers to take time off for annual leave purposes.

As of 1st January 2011, NHS Professionals will no longer pay “rolled up" holiday pay. From this date flexible workers registered with NHSP will be able to book holiday and be paid once the leave has been taken. NHSP flexible workers will be entitled to up to 28 days annual leave including bank holidays.
