Areas of Law / Employment

I’ve worked for a company for over 12 months now, but because we’re homeworkers our employer says we’re not entitled to any holiday pay. We receive a pay packet with a works number on though, so we’re not self-employed.

Your employer should be giving you at least 5.6 weeks’ holiday with pay a year. If your company is claiming that you are self-employed you should point out that the law states that an employer must prove this to be the case; it’s not up to you to prove that you are not self-employed. If you suggest taking the matter to an employment tribunal your employer is almost certain to back down.
