View Full Version : New Holiday Entitlements

I understand that holiday entiltlements are to be increased from October 2007, and April 2009, with the minimum requirement to be 4.8 weeks. Are Practices instigating this as of 1.1.08, and for example how are people giving a point of a day off? for example someone working 3 days a week goes from 12 days to 14.40 days a week, are people reverting to hours?

The norm is to round up in calculating holiday entitlement to the nearest half day. However, it does make sense to revert to hours and rounding up to the nearest hour is acceptable practice. This is what I do in my Practice and I believe the DTI suggested best practice. There is also a holiday calculator available on the web which you may find useful:

Hope this helps.
