Calculating Holiday Pay


The right to paid holiday under The Working Time Regulations 1998 gives 5.6 weeks’ paid leave. Holiday pay is based on a week’s normal pay. However, a week's pay may vary depending on the terms of the contract and recent case law to include overtime, commission and shift allowances. In addition, atypical workers - workers who work irregular hours - are also entitled to holiday pay and this can be complicated to work out. This Mini shows you how statutory pay is calculated.
