Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrated as bank holiday

The government has announced that there will be an extra bank holiday on Tuesday 5 June 2012 for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The late May bank holiday has also been moved to Monday 4 June 2012 to create a long weekend.

As with the Royal Wedding in 2011, employers will need to clarify how their employment contracts treat annual leave - in particular, whether an extra bank holiday will entitle staff to an additional day's annual leave in 2012.

For more information, see HRBird's section on annual leave and time off.
