Full-timers holidays entitlement calculation

Full-time employees are entitled to a day off from work on full pay when a public holiday does not fall on their day of rest.

Part-timers holiday entitlement calculation

Part-Time employees working less than 40 hours a week, are entitled to a pro rata calculation of the Full-Time employees’ entitlement.  This is calculated by establishing the weekly number of hours of work based on the average number of hours of work spread over successive 13 week periods, commencing on the 1st January of each calender year.  Part-time employees who have not been in employment for a period of 13 weeks the average weekly number of hours of work shall be calculated over the number of weeks in employment.
