Substitute Bank Holiday for Boxing Day and Christmas: A substitute bank holiday (also called a Christmas casual day) is a provision in the employment laws of the United Kingdom, European Union, and the Republic of Ireland which mandates an employer to give its employees a public holiday on another day if one of the employee’s own religious festivals has fallen on a normal workday and if the employee does not have sufficient leave in respect of that day.
This article, therefore, addresses all banks in UK, Europe, and Ireland. The days when banks were liable to remain closed in commemoration of declared feast days — used in former times for purposes of piety — have long since gone by.
