    Hi,

    I have been in odd-jobs in life, i.e. ones that last 3-4 months and I have never really had a steady income.

    Just got a few questions
    1. What happens if you take more than 22 days off work. Do you then not get paid?
    2. Can you take off days when you feel like it, i.e. your birthday etc?
    3. If you work in an office for a company, do you get bank holidays?

    This is full time? It's illegal if that includes bank holidays.

    Otherwise then obviously you can't just take them off, you can ask for unpaid leave but it's likely to be granted for compassionate leave and little else.

    1. You can't generally take more leave than you are entitled to. There are exceptions for illness and bereavements, but basically when they say 22 days plus Bank Holidays, that's the maximum you are allowed.

There will probably be limits to the number of people that can be on leave at once, so that the work doesn't stop if everyone wants the same week on holiday. Usually its first come first served, but you will have to find out when you get into the office

    Usually, but not always, it depends on the work and if it needs to continue every day or not. If you have to work a Bank Holiday, you will get an extra day off in lieu

    1. You have a holiday allowance of 22 days. Why would you think you can have more than that?
    2. You have to book the days ahead with your manager, if he can fit in your holiday request then he should do so, but he is under no obligation to give you your birthday off. However, once your holiday dates have been agreed, they cannot change them unless you agree with the change.
    3. You will probably have bank holidays off in an office job, as well as weekends. But again, it depends if your company expects some colleagues to work bank holidays.
