Acas has also reminded employers of the workplace rights around annual leave and flexible working and has issued guidance on holiday workplace rights.
The Acas helpline has received over 100,000 calls relating to holidays and working time issues over the last year. John Taylor, Acas Chief Executive, said:
'Many businesses receive an increase in holiday requests over the summer and an employer often has to balance the needs of the business with keeping a healthy and motivated workforce. We always encourage employees and employers to plan ahead and be as flexible as possible.'
