Annual leave entitlements begin to accrue the moment an employee starts to work with you, meaning they won’t necessarily have enough leave accrued to take their desired time off. However, if they have pre-booked holidays, it’s entirely up to the employer to decide whether or not they allow the employee to take them.
When you offer employees fixed term contracts, many may be hesitant to take the job if they feel locked into a contract. However, the law offers a range of protections to employees employed under fixed contracts that it’s important for any employer to highlight.
