Calculation of Holiday Pay

Webroster Ltd has been made aware of a recent tribunal ruling that states, all zero hours staff should be paid holiday pay based on the average hours worked during the previous 12 weeks multiplied by 5.6.

Webroster Ltd is pleased to inform you that there is a solution in place. We advocate best practice is to use the days method rather than the hours method. The days method processes holiday pay using the correct calculations as required by the new ruling. A holiday scheme for each working pattern should be set up and assign the appropriate number of days. A full-time member of staff working an average of 5 days per week or more would qualify for 28 days. A member of staff working an average of 3 days per week would qualify for 16.8 days. (Pro rata – three fifths of the amount).
