    Need help calculating correct Holiday Entitlement on Agency 17th May 17 at 4:31 PM
    Hey everyone,

    Can anybody help me work out how much holiday pay I am entitled to, I have not worked every week as a full week.

    My start date was : 3rd May 2017
    My End date was : 15th May 2017
    My Hours worked per week was 42.5 (full week)
    7 Week I have worked in total.

    I started Monday as training - I worked unusual hours

    Week 1 - 26 Hours
    Week 2 - 34 Hours
    Week 3 - 25.5 hours
    Week 4 - 34 Hours
    Week 5 - 42.5 Hours
    Week 6 - 34 hours
    Week 7 - 8.5 hours

    Average a week is : 29.2 Hours a week
    I have not taken any accrued holiday's since working their and my agency are saying I am entitled to 2 Days pay. is this correct, I'm not good at working things like this out ?

    regards
    Craig

    Based on Gov.UK , The statutory entitlement is 19 hours and 15 minutes holiday I am owed would be ?

    Would that mean I am owed 19.25 x £7.50(HR) = £144.38 if am correct?

    204.5 hours x 12.069% = 24.7 hours (24.681105 rounded up)

    Most will round the percentage up to 12.07.
    Whatever the result, the time cannot be rounded down.

    Normally training time should be paid but you may have agreed otherwise.

    When a worker works irregular hours their holiday pay can be calculated as the average of the previous 12 weeks substituting any week where nothing was earned with one that was. That last part means that in the 12 weeks if you had one week with no work you'd go back to the week 13 weeks ago and include that.

    Difficulty comes where you've not yet worked 12 weeks so have no earlier weeks to make up. Also Week 7 really kicks the average in the nuts.

    there are two parts to holidays

    Accrual of holiday which is based on the amount of work done

    Then the weeks pay for those holidays which in some circumstances needs to be done on averaging when the pay rates change for varous reasons.

    they are independent.


    For someone on fixed hourly rates the 12.07% of hours worked works.
