How is your Holiday Pay Average Calculated?
Holiday Pay is calculated on an employees average earnings from the previous 52 weeks. This calculation only takes into consideration the weeks in which employees have received payment from the company for hours worked, sick pay or previous holidays taken.
If during any of the 52 weeks the employee receives no pay, additional previous weeks are included in the calculation going back a maximum of 104 weeks.
For any employee that has been with the company less than 52 weeks, the holiday pay will be calculated depending on how many weeks since your employment commenced.
