Annual leave entitlement: Take part in our survey


XpertHR is running a short benchmarking survey on the annual leave entitlements offered by UK employers.

The research looks at annual leave entitlements, what happens to unused holiday, and whether or not annual leave entitlements increase according to length of service.

It also covers the types of pay that employers include in holiday pay, such as basic pay, payments for voluntary overtime (where the employer does not offer overtime and the employee does not have to accept it), shift premia and commission payments.

Last year’s XpertHR research on annual leave entitlements found that the median basic holiday entitlement for full-time employees (excluding bank/public holidays) with one year’s service was 25 days.

This figure has remained the same as previous surveys, conducted in 2015, 2013 and 2011.

The survey closes on Monday 13 March 2017.
