Under UK employment law, workers have rights to be absent from work. This is governed by the Working Time Regulations 1998.
This means that workers have a right to paid holiday, which includes overtime and commission, if they are part of an employee’s normal wages. There are also rules preventing an employee from choosing to be paid more instead of taking their holiday entitlement, except at the end of the employment relationship.
Workers also have a right to take rest breaks. However, these need not be paid.
