Quite possibly for some, but a week's leave can have a detrimental knock-on for leave allocation during the rest of the year - especially if your employer counts bank holidays as part of your entitlement, which is legal to do:
Likewise, shift workers, those who can't easily get work "cover" & those who work non-standard work rosters will find this very difficult.
For me, I work 6 days away from home, 4 - 5 off. My employer requires a minimum of 3 month's advance notice & there are limitations on how much I can take at specific periods of the year (Mar - Oct = high season in my job!).
Fingers crossed it is just for the Jocks!
