Employee leaving - accrue holiday

Advice on accrued holiday??

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

Hi Everyone,

I currently having a dispute in regards to holiday days that an employee has accrued. 

They are entitled to 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays which total to 33 days of annual leave. They work 5 days a week.

When calculating how many days had been accrued I used the following calculation:

33 days/12months=2.75

2.75*2.4 months(period of time worked) = 6.6days accrued = rounded up to 7 days for ease.

A colleague of mine thinks this is wrong and I should only be working it out on the annual leave (25 days). Now I think this is wrong as it's under the legal amount of holiday that must be provided. 

Any advice would be appreciated as I am starting to doubt myself??

Thanks

or remaining entitlement = 2.4 months/12*25 + (public holidays in the period) - (public holidays taken) -(other holidays taken)

This is not in line with current legislation.

I've always calculated your way. The holiday entitlement is 5.6 weeks and does not separate bank holidays therefore you need to calculate on this basis and deduct any holidays already taken.

You are correct. His entitlement is a proportion of the whole 33 days.

Bank holidays are just one of the employee's days off. It's been that way for over ten years now but this question still crops up regularly.
