Holiday pay and furlough

Zero hours employee paid holiday pay in November 2019

Didn't find your answer?

Zero hours employee was paid £1,500 for 150 accrued hours of holiday pay in November 2019.

So far I've included these hours and wages in my 2019/20 averages, however including them in the November 2020 CJRS claim gives usual hours of 270 and total pay of £2,700. Does this sound reasonable, or should I exclude them from this particular month for the 'same month last year' comparison, on the basis that he clearly didn't actually work 270 hours in November 2019?

I kind of think I should include them, but wonder if they distort the figures too much.

Guidance states:

"When you calculate the usual hours, you should include:
- any hours of leave for which the employee was paid their full contracted rate (such as annual leave)"

I'd include them.

If he'd taken that holiday pay over several months, would you be asking whether it should've been excluded?

I'm guessing - and hoping - no.
