Can anyone help please? A salaried GP works 4 sessions (out of 8 ie 0.5wte) per week and towards the end of the contract has 6 leave days(sessions) to take as A/L but instead works them and is to be paid them with final salary. How do I calculate payment?

I have paid annual salary divided by 365 multiplied by 6 on top of normal salary for the month. This is on the basis that they have worked 6 extra days for me and as salaried, I have always paid one twelvth of the annual salary each month.

They argue I should pay annual salary divided by 52 divided by 4 multiplied by 6.

If you use my method based on a pretend annual salary of £10,000 based on the 4 sessions (I did say, pretend),

my calculation is:

10,000 / 365 = 27.39 * 6 = 164.38

Theirs is:

10,000 / 52 = 192.30 / 4 = 48.07 * 6 = 288.46

So you can see the scale of the difference. Anyone had this problem and got it solved? as this is a salaried post, surely this is the same for any member of staff on the payroll and the issue of it being for a salaried GP who works sessions should make no difference should it?
