    Working out my holiday/vacation entitlement
    I have been tearing my hair out over this lol.

    I am trying to work my holiday (vacation) entitlement out. Can somebody please tell me if I am right?

    I get 27 days holiday plus the bank holidays (public holidays). My work year is 1st of April to 31st of March. Due to Easter moving about that means this year I get 7 days as bank holidays. In total this year I get 34 days holiday entitlement

    If I worked full time I would do 7.5 hours per day and work 5 days per week = 37.5 hours per week. 34 holidays days x 7.5 hours a day = 255 hours holiday entitlement. If I was full time every time I take holiday day I would lose 7.5 hours/1 day from my holiday entitlement.

    I donít work full time. I do 18.45 hours per week which is half a weekís work. I donít work 2.5 days though. I work 3 days per week and do 6.45 hours a day.

    Based on that information am I correct in saying

    This year I get 127.5 hours holiday entitlement (half of a full time worker). Every time I take a holiday day I take off 6.15 hours from my holiday entitlement

    Or should it simply be

    I get 34 days holiday entitlement. Every time I take a holiday day I just take a day off my holiday entitlement.

    Unless there is some law that governs this for your location. The wording does not sound like this is from the US. It is entirely company policy. So you would have to ask the personal department
