Queen’s Funeral Holiday declared – can I get a day off?

The Queen’s Funeral is next week and is a public holiday but are you entitled to the day off?

Her Majesty’s funeral is due to take place on Monday September 19 and will be confirmed by Buckingham Palace.

King Charles III approved a bank holiday for the Queen’s funeral when he was proclaimed king on Saturday.

However, government guidelines do not guarantee everyone a day off.

The new guidance means employers will decide whether to give employees the day off Queen’s funeral.

It states: “This is a matter of discussion between individuals and their employer.

“There is no statutory entitlement to holiday leave, but employers can include holidays in an employee’s holiday entitlement.

“The government cannot interfere with existing contractual arrangements between employers and employees.

“However, we assume that many employees will be able to take the holiday off.

“We also expect employers to be sensitive to requests from workers to take the day of the funeral off work.”

Schools will remain closed on the day of the Queen’s funeral. This will allow youngsters to watch the television service and pay their respects, government sources have revealed.
