Thousands of zero hours workers wrongly denied paid holiday – what the law says you absolutely ARE entitled to : Daily Record.

SUBSTRATUMS

 Citizens Advice has said hundreds of bosses are “deliberately flouting the law” by denying workers access to their rights.

Thousands of workers in Britain could be missing out on paid annual leave because they don’t think they’re entitled to it, new figures have revealed.

According to Citizens Advice, half of people on zero hours contracts, and two in five people on temporary contracts, wrongly believe they do not qualify for paid time off, meaning they could be missing out on hundreds of pounds a year.

The charity found that while some employers are misleading employees about holiday entitlement due to bosses’ ignorance, others are deliberately flouting the law and are exploiting workers’ confusion.

In the past year almost 185,000 people got help from Citizens Advice on employment issues – with 10,000 cases specifically about paid holiday.

Over the same period the Citizens Advice webpage on paid holiday had 260,000 visitors.
