KEY questions answered by the experts.

Q: I AM employed by a relatively small business and we are entitled to three weeks’ annual leave. I’ve been employed by the company for five years and was hoping my entitlement would increase but it hasn’t. Is this correct or should I be entitled to more holiday?

A: THE law states that you are currently entitled to four weeks’ statutory paid annual leave. However, this can include bank and public holidays.

So if your normal working week is five days, that entitles you to 20 days’ holiday throughout the year.

The government intends to raise this entitlement in October 2007 to 4.8 weeks paid annual leave (24 days) and again in October 2008 to 5.6 weeks (28 days).
