Can anyone help with working out whether I have accrued any extra holiday?
My 2018-19 holiday entitlement was 22.4 days based on a 32 hour contract over 4 days. However since 13 Jan I have gone upto a 40 hour contract over 5 days - does this give me any extra holiday entitlement owed? Holiday year finishes 30th April.

Yes you will accrue a little bit more. Does your contract variation letter not explain the holiday to you?

Surely your HR department can do the calculation for you?

I don't have a HR department & I also haven't received a new contract.. I'd just like to try work out exactly how much I should have accrued so I know that it's accurate, as I've had issues with holiday previously.

A full year on four days a week is 22.4 days. A full year on 5 days a week is 28 days. You will have spent 8.5 months accruing at the 4 days a week rate and 3.5 months accruing at the other rate.

22.4/12x8.5= 15.87


15.87 + 8.16 = 24.03 days, so basically you should have a total of 24 days this year, as opposed to 22.4.

But you need to get your contract variation confirmed in writing, and I would suggest asking for the change in holiday entitlement to be confirmed at the same time. That doesn't mean you need a new contract. Just a letter confirming your new hours, the start date of the change and the impact on your pay, holiday and anything else.
