Extra bank holiday planned for 2012

With the royal wedding just behind employers, the government has announced another extra bank holiday - this time for 2012 - to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Celebrations will centre around the first week of June - where the late May bank holiday will be moved to Monday 4 June 2012. An additional Jubilee bank holiday is planned for Tuesday 5 June.

Employers will need to review the wording of their employment contracts to decide whether the extra bank holiday will be provided to employees in addition to their existing annual leave entitlements, as paid leave.
