For many of of us working through the coronavirus pandemic, the idea of taking holiday seems a little bit pointless.
With holidays cancelled, a limit of an hour’s exercise per day on our heads, and only essential trips to the shops for ‘fun’, chances are, you’d probably rather keep that annual leave you’ve been planning on using.
This has, however, left many workers confused about their entitlement – which more often than not lasts a year, without the ability to be carried over.
That’s where Martin Lewis comes in.
Posting on Twitter, the money saving guru confirmed that all workers who have been required to work through the pandemic will be entitled to carry over any unused annual leave for two years.
He said: “CONFIRMED: The ability to carry over unused annual leave for up to 2yrs due to working during Covid-19 is for all workers not just key workers…
‘Yes it’s for everyone; technically any firm affected by Covid, but there aren’t many people that doesn’t apply to right now.'”
He added that furloughed employees are not in this category as they are not working right now.
