Welcome to the Talking Wills pro rata holiday calculator for part time staff


To ensure an accurate calculation, you should include statutory holidays in your contractual holiday entitlement.  The practice of saying X days holidays + Statutory holidays, e.g.  20 days + statutory can be inconsistent and potentially unlawful, so to ensure the consistent and lawful treatment of those who only work part of the holiday year, the annual leave entitlement should be the total amount inclusive of statutory holidays, using the example above the figure for the calculator should be 28 days NOT 20.

If a particular leave year has more than 8 days statutory days holiday, you need only add an additional day’s leave entitlement if it is a contractual term.
