I’m considering resigning as I have a health condition which is being made worse by stress.
I’ve been signed off since January. Our holiday year starts from July so my holiday allowance for last year that I didn’t get to use was carried forward to this year.
Does anyone know if for my final pay there is a legal requirement for me to be paid for the unused holiday from last holiday year?
I’ve looked online and I know they have to pay me a pro-rated amount for this years allowance but can’t find any guidance about what would happen to any holiday that’s been carried over.
I have contacted HR but they have said I need to discuss with my manager who will calculate it for me. The problem is he is a large part of why my stress levels are so high. He makes so many mistakes, doesn’t read or listen properly, is defensive and rude and I don’t have any faith all that he will calculate it correctly.
It depends on your contract. Some companies won't carry over holiday entitlement, some will. If you know they should, I'd suggest stating what holiday you have remaining from the previous employment year to make it clear - you could detail what leave you took if necessary to back it up.
