Calculating holiday pay for workers without fixed hours or pay
26 February 2019
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has published additional guidance on how to calculate holiday pay for workers whose hours and / or pay are not fixed.
The new guidance ‘Calculating holiday pay for workers without fixed hours or pay’ explains how to calculate statutory holiday pay for workers without fixed hours or fixed rates of pay. It has been designed as a practical guide for employers with sections designed to respond to specific questions employers may have when calculating holiday pay for individuals who are working without fixed hours or fixed rates of pay.
It complements the Holiday entitlement: the basics guidance, which explains how to calculate holiday pay for the majority of workers.
Both employers and workers can use this guidance.
The Policy team have been in discussions with BEIS, stakeholders and members for quite some time now to bring together more comprehensive guidance on the subject of calculating holiday pay. A big thank you to those of you who took the time to contribute whether through attending various thinks tanks and roundtables, or via phone or email, your input makes all the difference to affecting change, and in this case the creation of valuable additional guidance through your experience and knowledge.
Feedback on the guidance is welcome, so please do email us at policy with your thoughts.
