As a Temporary Worker you are responsible for ensuring that all paid annual leave is requested and taken within the Leave Year. The current leave year runs from Tuesday 6th April 2021 and ends on Sunday 3rd April 2022 (inclusive). Any leave not taken before the end of the Leave Year will be lost. You cannot carry over any annual leave entitlement from one Leave Year to another. Your holiday accrual will be printed on your payslip so you can keep track of what you have currently accrued.
BANK HOLIDAYS ARE NOT AUTOMATICALLY PAID – if you wish to book a bank holiday from your accrual you will need to follow the normal process below.
In order to take holiday, please give notice of at least twice the amount you wish to take off, ie. 5 days holiday = 10 workings days' notice.
You will need to seek authorisation from the company you are currently on an assignment with and then request a holiday form or speak to your Consultant.
The amount of payment which you will receive in respect of periods of annual leave taken during the course of an Assignment will be calculated on an average of the total gross pay received over the previous number of weeks you have worked. This is because holiday pay is now calculated on a 52 week ongoing average. For example, if you have been paid for 4 weeks your holiday pay will be calculated on an average of 4 weeks, when you have worked 10 weeks it will be calculated on an average of 10 weeks. (Please be aware if you do not work your full hours or you have any time off this will affect the amount you are paid when on holiday).
