It comes with the job - holiday pay

1 March 2019

The Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) is currently supporting a government campaign raising awareness around holiday pay.

The ‘it comes with the job’ campaign will help workers to understand their rights and employers to understand their legal obligations.

Around £1.8 billion of holiday pay goes unclaimed every year, affecting around 1.8 million workers.

The workers affected often work in atypical roles and aren’t aware they’re entitled to holiday pay. For example, 35% of workers incorrectly believe only workers in permanent jobs get holiday pay, and 50% of workers incorrectly believe that workers on zero-hours contracts do not qualify for holiday pay.

 It’s hoped the campaign will raise awareness amongst employers and employees of holiday pay entitlements - including by pointing them to https://www.gov.uk/holiday-entitlement-rights/holiday-pay-the-basics.

It’s also hoped it will increase the number of workers having conversations with their employer and receiving the correct holiday pay entitlement.

The campaign launched on Monday 25 February) and will run throughout the UK for a month. It will consist primarily of video on-demand, Spotify advertising, digital website advertising, and adverts in train stations and on the roadside.

How you can help

Any help that you can provide in terms of promoting the campaign when it launches on social media, and among your networks, would be greatly appreciated. There is also an online stakeholder toolkit.  Here, you’ll find a raft of messages, information, images and videos to use on your channels and to circulate with your contacts.
