Hi all

What do your contracts say?

user1471950254 Wed 16-Nov-16 11:56:46

As above with no information on your contract it's impossible to calculate

Depends on contractual allowance and whether you work Bank Holidays or not (as you would be entitled to time of in lieu I think).

It also depends on whether your hours have increased due to working more hours Per day or more days per week.

user1471451684 Wed 16-Nov-16 12:02:58

Your contract will say how many days leave, and will tell you what the rate they are accrued

sorry it doesn't say so I assume it's the statutory entitlement.
thanks for helping me.

ElizaSchuyler Wed 16-Nov-16 12:07:07

For no. 2 (no set hours) the statutory minimum would be to accrue holiday according to how many hours are worked each week. Assuming 36 hours exact from then til now that to date is 83 hours 5 minutes

The first job is friday, saturday, sunday and increased to an extra days from 01.10.2016. 12 hours shifts.

The second job doesn't have a fixed hours but also 12 hours shifts. They have given me 13 days annual leave.

The first one isn't giving me any!

also the second job, there was a couple of month where I worked more than 36 hours per week.

ElizaSchuyler Wed 16-Nov-16 12:09:09

It's the equivalent of 12.07% of hours worked over a year.

annualleave Wed 16-Nov-16 12:09:22

Thanks Eliza
is the 83 hours something like 7 days?

ElizaSchuyler Wed 16-Nov-16 12:12:15

You are entitled to 5.6 weeks holiday per year

ElizaSchuyler Wed 16-Nov-16 12:13:20

Assuming a 12 hour day, yes

annualleave Wed 16-Nov-16 12:14:29

do I accrue bank holidays despite not contracted to work on a monday?

annualleave Wed 16-Nov-16 12:14:58

Thanks for your time Eliza, appreciate it.

Are you paid on an hourly basis with no formal hours? If so there may be a basic hourly rate plus payment for leave, so you are reimbursed according to the amount you work.

ElizaSchuyler Wed 16-Nov-16 12:16:28

Got to be careful - I'm at work.

No one is entitled to bank holidays unless specified in your contract. The standard 5.6 weeks (28 days for those working 5 days per week) includes bank holidays.

ElizaSchuyler Wed 16-Nov-16 12:18:23

If you go into www.gov.uk/calculate-your-holiday-entitlement you can put your exact dates & hours in & it will calculate your entitlement.

annualleave Wed 16-Nov-16 12:20:05

Lizs thanks, the first job where I am having the trouble about the annual leave - I have set hours of 48. I started on 26 July for a set hours of 36 but was increased from 01 Oct to 48 hours. It's a set pay as well.

The second job am not too worried as they have already given me the annual leave.

Eliza thank you for clarifying. Please don't get in trouble on my account!

ElizaSchuyler Wed 16-Nov-16 12:21:15

Employers cannot "roll up" holiday pay Y including it in the hourly rate. It has to be paid for the time taken. I can't remember the date that rule was brought in but it was several years ago.

annualleave Wed 16-Nov-16 12:21:25

Thanks Eliza I did that but got confused as the hours were changed from 36 to 48 in October so I don't know how to calculate it.

FlyingCat Wed 16-Nov-16 12:22:32

Legally if you work full time, defined as five days a week, you are entitled to a minimum of 28 days holiday per full year - however your employer can deduct bank holidays from this number.

If you work part time or flexed hours your contract should set out how much you are entitled to but it should be at least % of full time x 28 days per year for each job.

ElizaSchuyler Wed 16-Nov-16 12:23:39

Do two separate calculations. One from just to end of sept & 1 from 1 oct to now.

annualleave Wed 16-Nov-16 12:25:15

also the calculator I assume runs from 06 April to 05 April, the tax year?
