· All holiday requests must be submitted in writing using the holiday request form available from this website or from the office. No holidays are to be booked with travel agents or otherwise or assumed as authorised until written or emailed confirmation has been received from Markham. Holidays will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
· South West Home Care now operates a rolling 12 month booking system. What this means is that you are able to book up to 11 months in advance. Below are examples of how this works:
On the 1st of December 2011 you will now be able to book holidays up to and including 31st November 2012. On the 1 January 2012 you will be able to book holidays up to and including 31th December 2012.
The reason for this change is to prevent the scramble for holiday booking in January each year.
· You are only entitled to your statutory annual leave. Any other unpaid leave is at the Partners discretion.
The holiday accounting period i.e. 20 days plus bank holidays still runs from 1st January to 31st December each year.
If there are any questions about this or you are unsure of the rules please speak to one of the partners.
