Accruing Additional Annual Leave

(4 Posts)

Hi, can anyone advise me on the following..,

...I work on a part time basis, however due to staff shortages, I have been working full time since Jan. I am thinking of asking for additional leave (pro-rated) to reflect the hours I've worked and for the length of time I have, does anyone know if legally you can do this and how do you calculate the additional annual leave, just say for example I work 20 hours a week and am now working 35 how do I calculate any additional annual accrued for the 5 months so far.

Many Thanks

I'm not an expert but it may depend on how you've been doing the additional hours. If you had a change in contracted hours then you should get the additional leave. However if you've just been doing it as overtime you probably won't. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be along soon.

The additional hours were only supposed to go on for a couple of months, nothing has been changed in my contract and I have been paid for all the additional hours. But at the moment it looks set to continue for another month...and I do feel at the moment I'm accommodating a lot of it in my time...

I think there's no harm in asking but if you've been doing the additional hours as overtime I don't think legally they have to give you leave. As I said though I'm not an expert.
