Just wondering about how holiday pay works - when I book time off at my job, does this automatically get paid as holiday pay ? Or do I have to specify that my booked holiday is requested as holiday pay?

I’ll try to make that a bit more detailed; if I have accrued holiday available, does the time off get paid out of this or do I have to request it specifically? Thank you in advance!

generally, you request a day off and then you still get paid as normal for the month, holiday allowance down by 1 day.

Some part time jobs/zero hours, MAY say that the hourly rate includes 12.8% extra to cover holidays (and then you hgave this holiday when not working), but i have not seen this fir a while

best to ask your emolpyer/colleagues.

I agree.
Best check with your employer as places do things differently.

Thank you! I didn’t get paid my holiday pay although I booked time off, I’m wondering if that’s technically my fault for not specifying that.

But people don’t get paid holiday pay, you get paid the day ad if you worked it.
Are you saying you booked w day off and got paid nothing for that shift?
In which case speak to boss but maybe you are paid a rate that includes holidays. But it would say this in your contract.
