    Nice one!

    Just found out that my new employer gives me Christmas off without it being taken from my annual leave entitlement! Means I have an extra 3 days leave which I can carry over to next year. Add that to my already generous leave allowance, and the extended school holidays that we get in private education, and I'm a happy bunny.

    Thank you very much nicely!

    oh gawd, sorry fellas, didn't mean to rub it in, but it was a pleasant bit of news after my last place which 'commanded' you take time off and took it out of your entitlement, and made me take owed holiday as part of my notice period.

    I think that's an excellent piece of news, for ya!

    I've just been told that the 3 days are going to come out of my annual entitlement, so if someone is getting a good deal....that's fine by me!!!

    Unfortunately it's the same issue here, which I don't really understand. The school is closed, therefore I can't come in, but they're still going to take the time out of my annual entitlement... Hmm, not fair if you ask me!!

    Most companies are the same the last company I worked for forced us all to take annual leave.

    The school I'm working in atm never closes so its either take annual leave or work it :|

    I get from the 17th of Dec to the 3rd Jan off without taking it out of my entitlement - nice touch but having 19 years of my working life employed by companies who get busy before xmas and the pressure was on right until breakup, I am going to enjoy it!

    At my last company you got 20 days plus Bank Holidays and you had to allow enough for the Christmas shutdown as this was compulsary. On the other hand, if you worked in accounts you weren't allowed time off over Christmas as it was a American owned and year end was December 31st.

    I don't even understand mine. I have to work x hours a week on Term Time + 2 Weeks, but randomly get told to go home on INSET, term ends, etc. No idea where it is made up.
