From NAMB chief executive Gill Brooks-Lonican

first_imgDear MemberThe Christmas holidays are:l Saturday 24 December normal working dayl Sunday 25 December Christmas Dayl Monday 26 December Boxing Dayl Tuesday 27 December Bank Holiday in lieu of Christmas Dayl Monday 2 January Bank Holiday in lieu of New Year’s DayA number of members have indicated that they will be opening on 27 December. If it is your intention to open, try to give staff as much notice as possible to avoid “I’ve already booked to go away”. Remember that, if you do open and your employees are required to take Bank Holidays out of their annual holidays, then this day will not be deducted from their allowance. The same will apply to the New Year.Other members are closing for the week in which case make sure staff keep enough holidays to allow them to be paid; they can, of course, ask to take this unpaid and have their paid holidays another time.To all our members, a very Happy Christmas and wishing you all health and success in the New Year.last_img read more
