I have a client with one employee on his payroll, zero hours contract.
His total hours for the last worked 52 weeks total 1630.5
If I use the 12.07% method (not sure if this is still allowed per certain search results) the entitlement is 196.80 hours
If I use the average hours method x 5.6 weeks, the entitlement is 175.62 hours (1630.5/52 = 31.36, 31/36x5.6 is 175.62)
Quite some difference and not sure which to use (obvious which one favours my client)
Many HR websites still show the 12.07 method so are companies still using this method?
