    The legal minimum holiday entitlement is 5.6 weeks, so as you are working a 5 day week that does indeed mean you are entitled to 28 days. This can include public holidays.

    Are you a new employee? If the 17 days are referred to as floating that suggests to me that there may also be some holiday that has to be taken at a fixed time, perhaps at a Christmas close down.

    Hi Arman123 - we've got some information about holidays and paid holidays on our Adviceguide website, and it's going to depend on the Ts&Cs of your contract. If you need further help on this, we'd recommend contacting your local bureau - and it would be useful to have your contract to hand when you speak/meet with an adviser.
