Q: I understand there is to be a Bank Holiday on Friday, 8th May in 2020. Do we have to give this on top of the usual 8 bank holidays?

A: The Government have announced that the May Bank Holiday in 2020 will be moved from Monday, 4th May to Friday, 8th May to commemorate the 75th anniversary of VE Day which falls on this date.

This applies to England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Make it clear to your employees that this is not an additional bank holiday.
