well its 5.6 weeks holiday so even if they are only 1 day a week its still five weeks so therefore 5 days, which would be one day a week i dont no how the .6 wrks if some ppl round it up to another day

The minimum she is legally entiled to is 5.6 days which most employers would round up to 6. Does she work on a Monday? If so, you can take bank holidays out od this entitlement, but obviously that leaves her no days to choose for her own holiday so you may need to think further on that one (generally you choose half and she chooses half, though legally you can dictate when she takes all her holiday).

In the UK a one day a week nanny is entitled to 5.6 days (you can't round this down, so effectively 6 days) of paid holiday each year. This can include bank holidays so if you have paid her for any weeks she has not worked because of a bank holiday she has already had some of this allowance.

In theory there is no entitlement to holiday pay, she must take (and you must allow her to take) 6 days off. But in practice you can both agree to pay the normal rate for any days not taken.

thanks a lot.

6 days pro-rata'd for 6 months would be 3 days in this case then, probably 2 days over Christmas, which I'massuming she'd be up for anyway, and she can chose the third.

So if your employing a nanny for 1 day per week for only 6 months then yes 3 days holiday is fine but if it were me i'd be a little annoyed that out of those 3 days i could only choose the one!

Is that what your saying or have i got confussed?

well its to be a flexible day according to our schedules... sometimes Monday sometimes Tues or Thursday.

Does this exclude bank holidays??

well if it doesnt include a friday then she would be off christmas anyways so you cant take that as a holiday unless maybe her day feel on the xmas eve and she wanted that off. yea the 6 days includes bank holidays
