I don't trust my boss to pay my annual leave

DEAR DEIDRE: I THINK my employer is being dodgy when it comes to holiday pay.

Instead of getting paid when I take annual leave, I receive accrued holiday pay for time worked each month, in my monthly salary. I have never heard of it before.

I am a 22-year-old woman and work front of house in a busy city restaurant.

I love the job but am struggling to get my head around what my boss is doing.

I have never had access to my payslips to confirm this, but it’s what I suspect.

Also, I’ve tried talking to my colleagues about it but they don’t seem to know.

I am not sure they have even noticed.

I’m questioning whether this is even legal.

DEIDRE SAYS: The law says workers should get 5.6 weeks’ holiday each year. This is known as your statutory entitlement.

Holiday pay should be paid for the time when annual leave is taken.

By law, employers must give all their workers payslips.

Ask your manager or payroll team if it is possible to get a copy of all your previous slips, as they should have them.
