A weekday holiday is a public holiday falling on a weekday (Monday to Friday).
If you work on a weekday holiday, you are entitled to payment for the number of hours that you work during the day as well as supplements for the hours (see article 8(4) or article 13(6) of the SCA if you are a shift worker).
In addition, you are entitled to time off in lieu corresponding to the number of hours that you work on the weekday holiday (see article 4 of the SCA).
Further, you should be aware that a number of bank holidays are put on a par with work on a weekday holiday.
For part-time employees and employees with varying working hours
If you work part-time with reduced working hours in the form of whole days off, you are entitled to time off in lieu if your agreed day off falls on a weekday holiday. If you have varying working hours, and for example work in the evening/night or at weekends, you will have work-free days in your work schedule, for example because you have been at work during the weekend. If your work-free day falls on a weekday holiday, you are entitled to time off in lieu.
In both cases it must be agreed locally how the time off in lieu is calculated.
The time off in lieu is deposited in your hour bank account, unless otherwise agreed locally.
