Carry Over Of Holiday Entitlement Agreement


This Carry Over of Holiday Entitlement Form is to be used for an employee to make a request to carry forward holiday from one holiday year to the next.

The leave year is set by the employer and employees normally need to take these leave days during the holiday year. Carrying over annual leave occurs when leave is not taken in the year it was accrued but is carried forward into the following leave year instead.

Workers are entitled to carry forward up to 28 days’ leave into the following leave year if:

  • The worker is prevented from taking annual leave because of a period of statutory leave, such as maternity or adoption leave
  • The worker is prevented from taking their annual leave entitlement on account of long-term sickness absence
  • An employer has failed to give the worker a reasonable opportunity to take holiday or has failed to encourage them to do so
  • An employer fails to inform the worker that untaken leave will be lost at the end of a leave year.

The form asks the employee to state the number of leave days they wish to carry forward and give a reason for the request. The line manager has to agree/ reject the request and return the form to the employee.

This form is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
