Carry Over Of Holiday Entitlement Agreement


This Carry Over of Holiday Entitlement Agreement is to be used when an employee and employer to agree to carry forward any unused amount of the additional leave entitlement after a minimum of 4 weeks (20 days for a full time employee) holiday has been taken.

Employers should be aware that, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Working Time Regulations have been temporarily amended to allow workers to carry forward four weeks (20 days) of their statutory holiday entitlement into the next two years immediately following the year in which it was due if they were unable to take holiday because of the “effects of coronavirus”.

This Carry Over of Holiday Entitlement Agreement documents an agreement between an employer and employee to avoid disputes further down the line. It can be used to either legislate for the scenario where the employee simply doesn’t use their increased holiday entitlement, or to obtain a specific commitment from the employee not to use the additional holiday entitlement, effectively affording the employer more time to ensure that there will be adequate cover for when employee does take more annual leave.

This agreement includes the following Clauses;
1. Definitions and Interpretation
2. Carry Over of Additional Holiday Entitlement
3. Employee’s Obligations
4. Company’s Obligations
