Individuals, businesses and other organisations will be allowed to pay their respects to Her Majesty and commemorate Her reign, while marking the final day of the period of national mourning

This Bank Holiday will operate in the same way as other Bank Holidays, and there is no statutory entitlement to time off. Employers may include Bank Holidays as part of a worker’s leave entitlement.

The Bank Holiday will be a unique national moment, and employers are being encouraged to respond sensitively to requests from workers who wish to take time off.

The Government has published guidance for the public and businesses on the period of national mourning.
