Questions from our forum 29/11/10Monday, November 29th, 2010
Each week we receive a number of payroll questions on our forum, and here are this week’s batch. Can you help with any answers?
I process all self certs within my company and was wondering if anyone knows how long we should be keeping self certifications for. I know ssp records should be kept for 3 years but is it the same for self cert forms aswell? I dont want to keep them longer than required as they are beginning to take up alot of space in the cabinets.
I have an employee of a client who has asked whether their staff have automatic entitlement to the extra Bank holidays in 2011 and 2012.
I have given the information on directgov as follows:
“Time off for employees
You don’t have an automatic right to paid leave on bank and public holidays, though many people receive the day off work. Any right to time off or extra pay for working on a bank holiday depends on the terms of your contract of employment.”
However the employee has now come back to me saying they do not have contracts of employment, so where do they stand?
