Headaches with staff holiday entitlement?

How to work out staff holidays

  • Define and group which of your team are paid by the day or by the hour – each has a different entitlement calculation method. (For example part time employees may have calculations by the hour)
  • Divide employees into those with fixed working days and shift patterns and those that vary
  • Check the regulations in your jurisdiction using the links below
  • Ensure if your policy includes discretionary paid time off to the statutory amounts in addition to banks holidays

This annual leave calculator determines agreed or statutory holiday pay and annual leave entitlement allowance for full-time staff, or pro rata for part-time workers. (Includes Bank Holiday payments.)

The staff holiday calculator tool covers most circumstances in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, but does not cover every individual case.

If you want to work out holidays for part time staff this tool can cover the basics but an HR system is always the best solution for calculating the annual leave allowances for any kind of worker or a mix of various kinds of Paid Time off Requirements. (Especially to calculate holiday entitlement for new employees.)

If in doubt, we advise that you consult a legal or HR professional who can advise of your exact obligations as an employer, or specific entitlements that apply to you as an employee.

Please note this is a holiday entitlement calculator NOT a holiday pay calculator.

In Ireland the Irish annual leave a sick pay legislation is outlined at: citizensinformation.ie – Holiday Entitlement
