Please could someone in the know re holiday pay etc help me work this out? Baby brain is in full effect.

I am 34 weeks pregnant and began a temporary job on Sep 1st which will finish on Dec 31st. I work 3 days x 5 hours each week. I am trying to work out how much holiday I will have accrued by the end of these 4 months, so I can have it added on to the end?

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

5.6 statutory weeks x15 hours a week / 365 calendar days in a year X 122 calendar days Sept to Dec = 28 hours less 5 hours for each bank holiday falling on your working day = ?

It will depend on whether Christmas Day and Boxing Day fall on your normal working days and whether or not you work them.

I would suggest the government calculator but it's down for maintenance.

Under regular T+C's, you are entitled to 5.6 days pa for every day you work. So, 5.6 x 3 = 16.8 days, pa (this includes public holidays). You will have worked one third of a year, so 16.8 /3=5.6 days.
But you need to check your contract of employment, as a temporary contract rsvt could differ wildly

Thank you..

Christmas Day & Boxing Day will fall on my working days yes (tues-thurs) but no other bank holidays during the 4 months.

My contract states 4 weeks holiday each year pro rata, plus paid bank holidays. One day's accrued holiday pay is equal to 1/260th of my salary.

I don't know why but anything involving numbers and my brain just won't process it at the moment Blush

Following on from my earlier post as your contract is for statutory leave you have 28 hours less 10 hours for the bank holidays = 18 hours or 3.6 days.
The difficulty is the 1/260 as this would be for full time five days a week as 260 is the number of working days in a year 52 weeks x 5 days. As you work 3 days and have a pro rata salary the calculation may be your annual salary /156 days x 3.6 days = holiday pay. However there are other ways this could be calculated so you need to check with your payroll/HR team.

You also need to check your organisations holiday year, if relevant if they allow carrry over from one year to another.
WHy don;t you ask HR or whover does your payroll for advice?
