Annual leave incorrectly calculated

(3 Posts)

I'm currently working on a short term contract for a large public sector organisation. My annual leave is annualised and when I started it said how many hours leave I was entitled to in my contract. At the time, I questioned the fact I seemed to have far too much leave but was assured it was correct.

Today I was called into my line manager's office and told the hours had been worked out wrong and to cut a long story short I now owe the organisation 15 hours in leave.

I have now had to cancel all my future booked leave because I'm not entitled to it and when I showed my manager my contract she said there's nothing that can be done. Put simply, I'm entitled to a certain amount of leave, I've taken it all and tough luck.

I know there's probably nothing I can do about it and my contract finishes in December anyway but I'm furious that a mistake on personnel's part means I now can't spend anytime over Xmas with my family.

Any ideas as to how to proceed?

I offered to take unpaid leave but it's a no-go. To be honest, my manager is an absolute witch to work for and we're all terrified of her. I don't even dare pursue it with personnel as they're absolutely clueless and it will no doubt get back to her that I'm questioning it all.
