With Europe opening up for tourism and UK lockdown restrictions easing, employers are receiving holiday requests for trips abroad from employees. Can you stop them if the destination is high-risk? What if they have to quarantine on their return? What if the trip is to visit overseas family? Some employees are also asking to cancel pre-booked trips to save up their holiday entitlement – do you have to agree? Our employment law experts Dan Begbie-Clench and Rose Smith guide employers through the thorny questions arising in respect of holiday in light of the COVID-19 lockdown.
Areas they look at include:
· Can you force staff to take their accrued holiday?
· Do you have to let staff cancel the time off they had planned?
· Do you have to permit staff to carry over holiday to the next holiday year?
· How should you interpret when it is “not reasonably practicable” to take holiday?
· Can you stop staff from travelling overseas on their holidays?
