Looking to calculate holiday pay for a zero-hours employee who started mid-May - they've been on the payroll for 22 weeks, but only worked 10 of them - 210 hours in total @ £10/hour. Using the 12.07% method, they'd be due £253.47
Using the new method, I understand their average weekly pay should exclude the weeks they didn't work, giving an average weekly pay of £210. However, do they still accrue holidays over the full 22 weeks? If so, that gives 22/52 x 5.6 = 2.37 weeks' entitlement, or £497.70. A massive difference!
Please somebody, tell me I'm being daft and have missed something obvious!
