Are part-time workers entitled to holiday?

Part-time workers are entitled to paid holiday under both the Working Time Regulations 1998 (WTR) and the PTW regulations. Under the WTR, all workers are entitled to four weeks’ paid holiday per year, and under the PTW regulations, part-time workers have the right not to be treated less favourably on account of their part-time status. Consequently, if a full-time employee working five shifts a week is entitled to 20 days’ paid holiday, a part-timer working two-and-a half shifts per week is entitled to 10 days’ paid holiday.
