Fit for a Queen

As if we haven't been overrun with extra bank holidays in 2011, the Government has announced that there will be an extra bank holiday in 2012 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

As if we haven't been overrun with extra bank holidays in 2011, the Government has announced that there will be an extra bank holiday in 2012 to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. By moving the late May bank holiday back to Monday 4 June and adding the extra bank holiday on Tuesday 5 June workers should be able to enjoy another four day break.

However, employers and employees alike need to be aware of the Working Time Regulations 2007. These state that employees are entitled to a minimum of 5.6 weeks off of holiday (multiplied by the number of days in a week) - giving a minimum of 28 days per year for a full time worker. Note that the rules don't give a right to the specific bank holidays though.
