LETS GET DOWN TO BUSINESS.

Question :
When making an employee redundant, can you require the employee to use up the remaining owed annual leave during the one month notice period? eg pay the full month but only require them to work 2 weeks with the remaining two weeks being paid as annual leave owed?

    Hi there – no, you can’t ‘require’ your employee to use their annual leave instead of their notice period. If the employee requests annual leave during that time you can grant it – and it may suit them as well as you for that to happen. You can also advise your employee that they don’t have to work out their notice period – but you will still need to pay them as if they are working, and you will need to pay out any outstanding leave in their final pay as well. I hope that’s helpful. Fiona
