The government has made a change to the Working Time regulations to give greater flexibility to businesses under pressure from the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Under the new rule, the worker will be able to carry four weeks of paid leave forward to the  next two leave years, so far as it was not reasonably practicable to take the leave as a result of the effects of the coronavirus. This is under SI 365/2020.
