The article deals with the changes in the Working Time Regulations (WTR). Labour's manifesto for re-election in 2005 included a pledge to overturn it and make bank holidays additional to the existing WTR paid holiday entitlement. One of the changes is that employers will be able to pay workers in lieu of the extra holiday entitlement until April 1, 2009. Employers need to notify employees in writing of the increase to their holiday entitlement within one month of the change to comply with the Employment Rights Act 1996.
