## Change of hours - Annual Leave entitlement

(5 Posts)

I'm completely stumped on how to calculate my leave entitlement for this year so hoping mn can help.

FTE is 37.5 hours a week. 22 days holiday.

Until 30 September I worked 18.5 hours and from 1st October I work 15.5 hours. Hr have told me I have 17.5 hours leave between oct-dec but I don't think this takes into account unused leave from the rest of the year. How do I work out my total annual leave entitlement for jan-dec?

Both full timers and part timers get bank holidays off so shouldn't be included in the calculation.

Thanks in advance to anyone who has the skills to solve this one!

Ok.

1 Jan - 30 Sep = 9 full months.

22/12 x 9 = 16.5 days for a full timer, or 123.75 hours. 123.75 x 18.5/37.5 = 61.05 hours

1 Oct - 31 Dec = 3 full months

22/12 x 3 = 5.5 days for a full timer or 41.25 hours. 41.25 x 15.5/37.5 = 17.05 hours

Total annual holiday leave in hours = 78.1 hours.

I worked it out slightly different to Elly poo but the result is approx the same.

37.5 hours is equal to 5 x 7.5hour days

You did 9 months doing 2.5 days and 3 months doing 2 days so....

22(FTE) / 2 for 2.5 days instead of 5 / 12 months x 9 months = 8.25days entitlement
PLUS
22 days / 12months / 5days x 2 days x 3 months = 2.20 days

Total days holiday entitlement = 10.45 days - I'd be nice and round that up to 10.5 days in the year. Which 78.1 hours / 7.5 hour working day is 10.4 days too by the other calculation.

Thanks both. That will cover my planned leave for the year. I was worried I'd have to lose some leave at Xmas. I have a notepad in work covered in numbers from trying to work it out.
