One in twenty workers say they are not receiving any paid holiday entitlement

Makbool Javaid

Resolution Foundation research has revealed that around one in twenty workers report receiving no paid holiday entitlement and almost one in ten workers are not receiving a legally required payslip. The analysis shows that the likelihood of a worker being subject to labour market violations is closely connected to their personal characteristics, their type of employment contract, the firm they work for, and the industry they work in, e.g. 1 in 6 workers aged 65+ report they have no paid holiday entitlement, those aged under 25 and over 65 are the most likely not to receive a payslip and workers in the hotels and restaurants sector are the most likely to miss out on minimum legal workplace entitlements.
