    Hi All

    I am stuck - I am leaving my job after 8.5 months employment but I am struggling to work my accrued holidays out - basically please see below

    28 days allowed - 8 bank holidays included therefore we are allowed 20 days personal holidays

    I have taken 6 personal days and 6 bank holidays

    How do I work out how many accrued days I have left that the Employer needs to pay me (if any) at the end of the month?

    If anyone can help me :)

    Thank you

    20 days including bank holidays. So roughly 8.

    Edit: For quick math to validate, assuming your work year starts 01/01/2021 and you leave 15/09/2021 (8.5 months) then you are 70% of the way through the year, so will have accrued roughly 70% of your leave = 19.6 days.

    Thanks you - I have used this but still confused haha!!! Call me stupid
    I work 5 days a week - 37.5 weekly hours but do I take 28 days -12 taken but I have only accrued 19.805 days (2.33 a day) so does that mean they owe me 7.805 days I guess?

    I would calculate that as 8.5 / 12 * 28 = 19.8 days, rounded up to 20

    You can be more accurate to use days / 365 rather than months / 12

    Yes I would agree with the calcs, assuming your leave year is Jan to December,
