I will be working 32.5 hours a week. 2 normal days and 3 shorter days (finish 3.30)
My holiday allocation will be 26 days + bank hols.
How do I work out my annual leave? I work every day mon-fri just different amounts of hours ( same each week) and will be salaried.
Is it best to say each holiday day is 6.5 hours regardless of whether I take a Monday off (when I work 7.5 hours) or a Tuesday (when I work 6)?? Or will I need to convert into hours and then each time I want to take time off work out the hours etc?? (So technically could only take the 6 hot days off and gain some extra days of annual leave??!!
That’s makes sense. How would the bank holidays work as I am starting 2 months into the leave year (and since 1st April we have already had 3 bank holidays) will I still get 10/12 of the bank holiday hours even though technically I will only need 4/7 for the rest of the year until 31st March? So I can use the unused bank holiday allowance as normal annual leave?!
So bank holiday hours for the year are 7*7.5 = 52.5 hrs /37.5 *32.5 = 45.5 hours per year I am starting with only 10 months of the year left so 45.5/12*10 = 37.9 hours
The remaining bank holidays aren’t: Aug (Mon) 7.5 hrs Xmas day (tue) 6 hrs Box day (wed) 6 hrs New year (tue) 6 hrs
So a total of 25.5 hours needed
Does that mean I get the other 12.4 hours as annual leave???
You should be able to use the remaining hours as additional leave, I am allowed to. I’m a Civil Servant though. You’d need to check with your employer as to their policy though.
What you tend to find is that sometimes you need all your bank hol hours in a year, sometimes you need to top it up with some of your a/l leave hours, depending on the days you work. I work part time over five days now but when I didn’t work on a Monday I had loads of bank hol leave spare. I used to use it to have a solid chunk of time off at Christmas.
The below is taken from the Gov.uk website. I assumed a start date of 1 June and a holiday period start date of 1 April. You are entitled to 152 hours holiday from June to March. (It can be rounded up but not down) 185 hours for a full holiday year.
Calculate holiday entitlement The statutory entitlement is 151 hours and 35 minutes holiday.
can include bank and public holidays as part of the statutory entitlement must not round down the holiday entitlement, but may round it up must provide holiday pay during the statutory leave can provide more paid holiday - this will be in the employment contract and is called ‘contractual leave entitlement’ Previous answers Start again Is the holiday entitlement based on:hours worked per weekChange answer to "Is the holiday entitlement based on:" Do you want to work out holiday:for someone starting part way through a leave yearChange answer to "Do you want to work out holiday:" What was the employment start date?1 June 2018Change answer to "What was the employment start date?"

You would be best to keep a spreadsheet with the total hours on, then record the hours taken as holiday and keep a reducing balance. If the firm shuts on a bank holiday, then you need to take off the usual hours worked that day. Part timers aren't usually entitled to all bank holidays, but a proportion in comparison to the hours worked against full time hours.
The Gov.uk calculator is a brilliant tool for helping part timers calculate holiday hours.
