How does my holidays work ?

Postby tigerplank » Thu May 02, 2013 8:15 am

Hi,I'm working at a private golf club & I'm on a salary.I'm paid the same salary every week no matter how many hours i do.
Over the winter the golf club is very quiet & so I only work around 2 days per week (approx 20 hours).
Now the summer is fast approaching I'll be doing 5 days & was wanting to know the following.............

When I take a holiday for say 2 weeks,does this count as 2 days p/week or 5 days ?
As I'm only doing 2 on average then I've been told from some people I should only lose 2 days for every week I take as a holiday,but that means if I take 10 weeks then I would be entitled to full pay & the 10 weeks would equal my 20 days holiday :-/

If the above is correct then it would be wiser for me to take my holidays just now before I start working the 5 days p/week.

The above maybe sound confusing :crazy:

Hi there,

If you have a contract it should say on there how many days holiday entitlement you have, and whether it is pro rata. i.e depending on how many days you have worked.

I would speak to HR about this and they can set you straight.

Cheers
Ruth :-D

In many jobs you gain holiday or annual leave entitlement due to the nos of hours/days you have worked . Although you seem to suggest that you are entitled to 20 days holiday per year no matter how many hours you are needed.

If thats the case I would suggest that every day you are away from work on a holiday would be a paid holiday day and so if you work full time ie 5 day per week , then 2 weeks away would equal 10 days annual leave .

However if you have been told & it is in your contract to only work 2 days a week for a certain time period ie during the winter any days that you should be in and take off as holiday would days from your annual leave entitlement.
So in the winter period if you are meant to work 2 days in a week then I would also suggest that you only need 2 days annual leave to take a full week off .

I would however discuss it wlth your boss or who ever in the Golf Club deals with pay & holiday entitlement , as others have said it should be written into your contract what your holiday entitlement is and if there are any restrictions on when you can take them.

I know I have worked in jobs where the main focus was the summer months and staff were not permitted to take long holidays during July & August. Single days were allowed but week blocks were frowned on.

I hope this helps

Thanks for the replies guys.
I like everyone else at the club are not on any contracts (been with them 5 years).
I was doing on average 40 hours p/week all year round,but 1 of the bosses told me (around 3 months ago) that i would need to go down to about 35 hours p/week & that in the winter I would only be doing around 25 hours & then when the summer arrives I'll have to make up the other hours & do about 45 but always getting the same salary/wage. :roll:
Nothing is in writing & so was not wanting to take say 2 weeks in the summer as a holiday if it's costing me 10 days,when I can just wait until the winter & take 2 weeks holiday & it's then classed as less holidays taken.

Do you have FM Tigerplank?? Only asking as I can't see any mention of it or any other conditions in your posts. If you have a disability/condition, I would have thought your employer would have to comply with provisions under the Equalities Act 2010 for your job to be as suitable as possible for you to do, which could well include holiday entitlement. It might be worth seeking advice from someone who specialises in this area of things so you know exactly where you stand, esp with you not having a formal, written contract. Disability Employment Advisers based in local JobCentres might be somewhere to start, even if they can't help, they may well be able to direct you to someone who can.

No disability's,just with being a chef at a private golf club you can guess how quiet it can get in the winter & so don't need to give 35 hours to each chef & so they give less & then they want you to do around 45 in the summer with no overtime bonus etc added.
They only brought this new change around 3 months ago & I'm working 3 days p/week & now May is here I'm up to 5 days p/week.

1 of the bosses said even if you work 1 day p/week when on a salary & you take a weeks holiday,then it's classed as 5 days holiday taken.
Sounds weird & also does not make sense as if I was to take say a 1 day holiday then they can't class that as a weeks holiday :-/

I used to work in a Country Park which had the same sort of variety in the hours . During the winter there was in theory less going on hence we may have been able to work shorter hours although alway in every day and in the summer you were needed longer hours.

We were told that a days holiday was always that a day and if you took it in the winter it was the same as summer. So it seems to be common practice although your arrangement of 2 day in the winter seems more formal than my arrangement.

I would contact someone ie a lawyer who knows about these things
