As an intern, do I have the right to paid holidays?
If you have 'worker' status as an intern, you are entitled to at least 5.6 weeks' paid holiday per year (reduced pro rata to your hours if you work part-time). This entitlement may include public and bank holidays. Your contract may provide you with better holiday rights.
Trainees are entitled to statutory rights to paid holidays. If your internship includes work experience or on-the-job training, you should be entitled to statutory holiday rights.
