How to calculate annual leave for part time workers.

Calculating holiday allowances for part time employees can be a real pain – especially if you only do it once in a blue moon. That’s why we’ve built this calculator. All you need to do is enter the required data and the rest is done for you.

We’ve built this calculator to fit most circumstances but please take care to ensure it fits with the way you work. If in any doubt seek advice from a qualified HR consultant.

 

What is the basic holiday entitlement?

Almost all workers in the UK are legally entitled to 5.6 weeks’ paid holiday each year. This is known as statutory leave entitlement and can include bank holidays.

Employees working a 5-day week get a minimum of 28 days’ paid holiday days each year (including bank holidays).

  • 5 days x 5.6 weeks = 28 days
Part-time workers get less paid holiday as their entitlement is worked out on a pro-rata basis according to the number of hours or days they work. For an employee who normally worked 2 days a week, their holiday entitlement would be 11.2 days
  • 2 days x 5.6 weeks = 11.2 days
No matter what the working pattern, a worker should still receive holiday pay based on a week’s normal remuneration. For workers with no normal working hours, this is based on the average pay received over the previous 12 weeks.
