With the attentions of many employees now turning towards their forthcoming summer holidays, employers need to ensure they at least understand the basics of the law on holidays and holiday pay – otherwise their legal position may not be quite so bright and sunny.

To help, our legal team at LHS Solicitors LLP has produced a handy legislation document outlining the key points for employers.

While it is important for organisations to stay on top of legislation and proactively manage risk to avoid costly employment tribunals, employment law protection insurance should be considered to provide protection against legal liability after an employment dispute.

To assist in preventing claims we give employment law protection policyholders access to an employer helpline, which offers support on a wide variety of employment law matters. This is supported by a vast selection of employment law factsheets, including:

- Holiday request form;
- Holidays policy;
- Letter declining employee’s request for annual leave;
- Notice requiring employee to take annual leave;
- Request to carry over holiday form.
