Are employees entitled to an extra day’s holiday on 3rd June?



To mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, the late May bank holiday has been moved to Thursday 2nd June and there is also an additional bank holiday on 3rd June.


Are employees entitled to an extra day’s holiday on 3rd June?


This will depend on what is included in their contract of employment. The contract of employment might state 20 days holiday per annum plus bank holidays. In this instance, employees will be entitled to take paid time off on the additional bank holiday.


If the contract states 28 days holiday per annum and is silent on bank holidays, then there is no increase in the employee's holiday entitlement as a result of the additional bank holiday.


If the contract states 20 days holiday per annum plus 8 bank/public holidays, or lists out the standard 8 bank holidays, employees will only be entitled to receive paid time off on 8 bank holidays.


Even where there is no contractual entitlement to take the additional bank holiday as paid time off, many employers, as a gesture of goodwill, will decide to allow their employees to take the additional bank holiday or to provide time off in lieu.
