The World Cup will take place in Brazil between Thursday 12 June 2014 and Sunday 13 July 2014.

The kick off times for the England games are scheduled between 5pm and 11pm (UK time), Brazil is four hours behind the UK. England is the only UK country to qualify, but other games may be of more interest to others.

The main issues which will affect both employee and employers will be around: 

  • Requests for annual leave  
  • Sickness absence  
  • Website use during working hours 

ACAS has provided some helpful guidance.
