Holiday pay

Part time workers are entitled to Holiday pay! It's pro rata so depends on how often you work. Under the Working Time Regulations you are entitled to 24 days' paid annual holiday and from April 2009 it goes up to 28 days (We campaigned for that and won!).

Break entitlement

Under the Working Time Regulations, you are entitled to at least a 20 minute break if you work more then six hours in one shift, and you shouldn't be asked to work longer than eight hours in 24 if you work at night.

However there is no requirement under the minimum standards that your employer must pay you for this break.

Getting Sacked

Your employer cannot fire you with immediate effect after you have been in a job for a month: you then have the right to a minimum of one weeks notice.
