In the UK, the minimum statutory requirement for paid holiday each year for a full time employee is 28 days or 5.6 weeks, including public holidays (part-time workers are also entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks, calculated on a pro-rata basis). There have been significant changes to the law surrounding holiday pay in recent years, with regulations now stating that regular overtime and commission payments need to be included.
