Extra bank holiday announced for 2012

Announcements have been made that next year there will be an extra bank holiday to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee that year. This extra day off will fall 5 June 2012 and as this is a Tuesday it has also been announced that, to create a long weekend, the late May bank holiday will also be moved to Monday 4 June 2012.

Employers are advised to plan ahead and decide how you want to manage this change, remember that the action you can take will be determined by what is stated in your  Employment Contracts.  Now would be a good time to review your contracts and ensure that they give you the flexibility to effectively manage bank holiday entitlements
