    Holiday pay - pro rate - based on contract or actual hours? 28th Sep 09 at 11:06 PM
    Hi all,

    I was wondering if you could help.

    I work part time and as such have a 7 hour contract (weekly). However, I regularly work upto 28 hours a week. (4 days).

    Obviously being part time, the holiday pay is pro-rata. However, they are using 7 hours as the calculation for the holiday pay. Considering I regularly work four times this, I find it pretty annoying.

    There are quite a lot of us on these 7 hour contracts but doing a lot more hours. It seems like a bit of scam for them to give us low hour contracts and get away with giving us less holiday pay. Is this correct?
