Time off and annual leave

Weekly rest period

21.—(1) An office holder shall be entitled to an uninterrupted rest period of not less than 24 hours in any period of seven days, but the statement of particulars of office issued under regulation 3 above may specify that any rest period may not be taken on or include a Sunday or any or all of the principal Feasts of the Church of England or Ash Wednesday or Good Friday.

Annual leave

22.—(1) An office holder occupying a full-time post shall be entitled to thirty six days annual leave or such greater amount as may be specified in the statement of particulars of office in any calendar year without any deduction of any stipend to which the office holder is entitled, but the statement of particulars may specify particular days on which annual leave shall or may not be taken and may, in particular, specify the maximum number of Sundays on which annual leave may be taken.

(2) During the first calendar year of the appointment, the amount of leave which an office holder may take at any time in exercise of the entitlement under paragraph (1) above is limited to the amount which is deemed to have accrued in his or her case at that time under paragraph (3) below, as modified by paragraph (4) where that paragraph applies, less the amount of leave (if any) that he or she has already taken during that year.

(3) For the purposes of paragraph (2) above leave is deemed to accrue over the course of the first year of the appointment at a rate which is proportionate to the proportion of the calendar year remaining after the date on which the appointment begins.

(4) Where the amount of leave that has accrued in a particular case includes a fraction of a day the fraction shall be treated as a whole day.

(5) For the purposes of paragraph (1) above, the amount of leave allowed by that paragraph shall exclude any period of special leave allowed by the diocesan bishop (or in the case of an office holder who is a diocesan bishop, the archbishop of the province in which the diocese is situated), including any such leave granted for the purposes of removal and re-settlement.

(6) Paragraphs (3) and (4) above shall apply during the final calendar year of the appointment as they apply during the first such year.

(7) An office holder occupying a part-time post shall be entitled to such period of annual leave as may be specified in the statement of particulars of office given to the office holder under regulation 3 above and paragraphs (2) to (5) above shall apply accordingly.
