I know that employees are entitled to 10 days’ paid personal/carer’s leave for every year of service they have worked for their employer. This entitlement accrues progressively and accumulates until the employee’s employment ends. Does it mean that personal leave for part-time employees is accrued on a pro rata basis?
Part-time employees are also entitled to 10 days’ paid personal/carer’s leave every year. When a day of leave is taken, the employee is paid the amount they would have been paid if they worked a number of ordinary hours equal to 1/10 of the ordinary hours the employee would have worked in a 2-week period (or if the employee’s ordinary hours in a 2-week period vary because of their working patterns, 1/260 of the ordinary hours the employee would have worked in a year). So, for example, a part-time employee working 19 ordinary hours a week over 3 days (6.3 hours a day) is entitled to be paid the wages that would have been paid if the employee worked 3.8 ordinary hours.
