With the government announcing that next year’s early May bank holiday will be moved from a Monday 4th May to Friday 8th May, organisations should consider how this change will affect their business practices.

If you require your employees to work on Friday 8th May, you must communicate and consult with your employees to inform them this will be a normal working day and provide them with an alternative day off. Organisations are encouraged to carefully review the wording within their contracts of employment and plan ahead to mitigate any disruptions.
