ACAS - Coronavirus guidance, Carrying over paid holiday and short term working

ACAS has published additional Coronavirus (COVID-19): advice for employers and employees.

Carrying over paid holiday

The government has introduced a temporary new law to deal with Coronavirus disruption.
 
Employees and workers can carry over up to 4 weeks’ paid holiday over a 2-year period, if they cannot take holiday due to Coronavirus.

View further details and Acas guidance.

Lay-offs and short-time working

If an employer does not have enough work for their employees, they may need to consider:

- lay-offs (sending employees home temporarily)
- short-time working (reducing employees' working hours)

These options may help avoid redundancies. But this should be a last resort for employers. View Acas guidance.

If employers can no longer provide employees with work during Coronavirus, they can access government financial support for furloughed workers.
