Holiday, sickness and notice periods


Holiday and sickness

Please ensure that you tell both the company you are working for and your Page Personnel Secretarial & Business Support consultant if you are sick or plan to take a holiday. As a temporary worker you have a minimum entitlement of 5.6 weeks statutory paid holiday in any holiday year (January to December). This entitlement accrues in proportion to the time worked by you and is paid as a 12.07% addition to your agreed pay rate. Some of our clients pay this when you actually take a day off. Make sure you are clear which policy the client you are working for adopts each time you take a new booking.
For more information on your rights, please see the Directgov website.

Notice periods

If you need to end your assignment early, please give as much notice as possible. It is expected that you adhere to any agreed notice periods; the company you are working would show you the same courtesy. Generally, the acceptable notice period for a temp is one week.
