Holiday Entitlement

Zero Hours contract

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

we have client with some staff on zero hours contracts

we have calculated holiday entitlment on an accrual basis as they work casual and irregular hours

client wants holiday entitlement calculated on a shift pattern basis, this seems completely wrong to us, the hours worked have varied massivley from month to month

hopefully we are correct?

I would go with the say 12.55% accrual (or whatever percentage it works out at for the employer) , certainly when we had a mix of full time and casual employees (when we did more construction projects) that was how I operated.

Not sure how the "shift pattern" approach works, is this trying to identify typical regular times, if it is how does one decide what is regular, or is it something else?

Agree with DJKL, though the percentage is 12.07%.

Or 12.08%, if you want to play safe.

What's a "shift pattern" basis look like, when it's at home ?

This is how we do it, 12.08% for all variable workers.

You meanie, we gave more than stat minimum holidays, or to be precise:

52 weeks x 5 days =260 days
29 days hols
work 231 days

29/231=12.554%

Certainly kindred spirits re St Patrick's day as I take the other half tomorrow to the midweek misery that is Easter Road . The offspring and her have 3 season tickets but son has run away to States, daughter unavailable, so someone will need to take her for her dose of Sunshine on Leith against St Mirren-it is baltic up here at the moment, there are far better things I could do -like stay warm.

Re the 12th it should be a holiday as it is actually my wedding anniversary- nobody else had booked an RC church for that day, wonder why?
