Despite the government declaring April 29th a bank holiday, and three in four employees knowing they will have the day off, around a quarter of workers still do not know if they will need to be at work, the survey of 1,000 people by Badenock & Clark found.
Lynne Hardman from the company said the onus is on employers to communicate "clearly and effectively" to their staff whether they will have the day off.
"If not correctly managed, employers may find workers react badly to what appears to be a last-minute decision - leading to low morale amongst employees," she warned.
Employers choosing not to allow their workers a bank holiday could find flexible working practices on the day might "alleviate the bad news", Ms Hardman suggested.
A recent survey by workplace provider Regus revealed that two-thirds of employers support the idea of a royal wedding bank holiday.
