Holidays Act 2003

  • not the latest version
6 Relationship between Act and employment agreements


Each entitlement provided to an employee by this Act is a minimum entitlement.


This Act does not prevent an employer from providing an employee with enhanced or additional entitlements (whether specified in an employment agreement or otherwise) on a basis agreed with the employee.


However, an employment agreement that excludes, restricts, or reduces an employee’s entitlements under this Act—


has no effect to the extent that it does so; but


is not an illegal contract under the Illegal Contracts Act 1970.
