2. Calculating Holiday
Statutory holiday entitlement is currently 5.6 weeks (which equates to 28 days, if an employee works a five-or six-day week).
Holiday for part-time employees is generally calculated on a pro-rata basis (i.e. 5.6 weeks at their part-time hours).
Employees do not have a statutory entitlement to paid leave on public holidays and as such these days can count as part of the holiday entitlement, i.e. you can give an employee 4 weeks (20 days) holiday plus 8 public holidays, which equates to 28 days or 5.6 weeks.
Provided you give the required 5.6 weeks holiday, you can determine when these days are taken e.g. allocating 8 days to bank holidays.
Note: 5.6 weeks is the statutory minimum. You can give more holiday...
