Even schools are telling pupils to enjoy the match and come in later.
HR experts and unions yesterday urged bosses to let staff take Monday off to avoid clashes with workers who will phone in sick if denied leave.
It comes amid mounting calls for an extra summer bank holiday if England win so the nation can celebrate the Three Lions’ success.
Boris Johnson has ruled out springing a surprise Bank Holiday on employers this Monday — but is considering one in August if England win.
The Sun has learnt officials are already drawing up proposals for a national day off so fans can celebrate free from Covid restrictions.
As football frenzy reaches fever pitch, the PM wants bosses to go easy on staff who show up late nursing monster hangovers on Monday.
Around eight million workers — one in four — have booked the day off.
Millions more are expected to throw sickies.
Asked if he would urge leniency on cheeky workers turning up late, the PM’s spokesman said: “We would want businesses who feel able to consider it if they can.”
Headteacher Gemma Donnelly, of Braywick Court School in Bray, Berks, was among many telling parents she will accept pupils not coming in until 10.30am after staying up late to watch.
Alan Price, chief executive at Bright HR, said: “Companies should make the most of the morale boost for the country after lockdowns, and encourage staff to book annual leave for the day.”
TUC boss Frances O’Grady said: “Bosses should talk to staff and try to let people who want to watch games do so — either at work, or at home — and claim back working time afterwards.”
Meanwhile, Chancellor Rishi Sunak predicted a win will fuel a £12billion euphoric spending splurge.
