Almost all employees are entitled to at least 4 weeks’ paid annual leave a year.
You and your employer have to agree when you'll take time off.
Your employment agreement tells you when you get paid for time off and how your pay is worked out.
You can ask to swap up to 1 week of your annual leave for cash each year.
You can take unpaid leave if your employer agrees to it.
