Acas advice over the festive season

15 December 2016

The Christmas season can have a big impact on businesses as holiday requests increase and the winter weather can cause travel disruptions.

While thousands will be celebrating with time off, many others will carry on working. A common myth is that an employee is entitled to have bank holidays off but the reality is it depends on what's in their contract.

Acas has a festive guide with advice on:

  • Christmas bank holidays
  • Annual leave over the Christmas period
  • Sickness absence during the Christmas season
  • Christmas parties
