Legalese of the Day: Custom and Practice

В одном из проектов коллеги имеют дело с британским трудовым законодательством. В соответствующих разъясняющих текстах часто повторяется выражение "custom and practice", которое мне очень нравится.

There is no statutory entitlement to paid leave for public holidays. Any right to paid time off for such holidays depends on the terms of the worker’s contract. If public holidays are not expressly covered in the contract, the right to paid leave may have built up through custom and practice.


Restrictions on taking holidays may be expressly stated in the contract of employment, implied from custom and practice, or incorporated into individual contracts from a collective agreement between the employer and trade union(s).
