  1. nhs contracts? Hi all, i am now working in the nhs as part of the theatre department and in doing so signed the usual contract agreeing to working on calls, late shifts and weekends etc, the problem is that some staff are not taking part in this arrangement because of various reasons ( my cats scared of the dark or little johnny wets the bed) sanctioned by the managers and therefore the remaining staff are having to work extra shifts to compensate. My question is, are we all being treated equally and do we have any basis for taking action against the management. Any h

  6. Hello Can anyone please tell me if an employee that has worked for a company 7 hours a week for 1 year, is entitled to holiday pay? If the amount of work hours above does not meet the amount that is required for entitlement. Can anyone please tell me how many working hours a week someone has to work to qualify for holiday pay? Thanks
  7. Please can someone give me some advice with regards to the issue of holiday pay entitlement if a person is working term time only on a zero hour contract? I currently work for a taxi company as a passenger escort for school runs. I work 39 weeks in term time only on a zero hour contract. I am not classified as self employed as I don't run my own business as they provide the work we do and they pay our tax and national insurance contributions. I only started employment with them on the 9th May 2016 and I haven't taken any paid holiday from that date to this year. I have been requesting abo
  8. I gave 4 weeks notice over 2 months ago now and should of received 4 weeks pay plus holiday entitlement. I did not recieve to holiday pay but they said they would investigate it. It dragged on all month and I did a few shifts for them after my notice was served to help with staff shortages. Today I was paid for the extra shifts I did for them but still no holiday pay. If they are saying I am still staff (bank staff) because I'm helping with a couple of shifts can they deny my holiday pay? Even if I was bank staff I don't see how I would be able to use holiday time because you only g

  11. Hi all, I've begun working with a teaching agency and have been on assignment since October 2016. The contract provided to me by the agency states that 'The Temporary Worker is engaged as a self-employed worker, although CT is required to make stautory deductions from the Temporary Worker's renumeration in accordance with clause 4(a)'. So I am self-employed but the agency deduct NI and PAYE tax from my pay - which is fine. The booking confirmations I have received from the agency cleary state Daily rate, length of booking, place of booking. There is no mention of a separate holiday p
  12. In order to qualify for the State pension you have to have made full NIC contributions for a number of years. Is this correct? If so, how many years? I believe the figure is 37 years. I have long been self-employed, low income, unmarried. I am fairly sure I have less than six years of contributions and will not achieve that State pension requirement by the time I reach retirement age, not even close. So, with regard to pensions, is there any point in making voluntary contributions?
  13. If someone works 20.5hrs a week, not including Mon or Tues, how is the bank holiday entitlement worked out?
  14. Hi I work for a small business which has no HR department. It's a combination of the administration manager and the finance department who deal with any HR related matters. I'm leaving the company and have asked for a note of my remaining holiday entitlement. They are saying I have no remaining annual leave as I've taken it all. I haven't. I've only taken 5 days. They say I've taken 16 days (I wish). I can prove that I was in the office on the days they say I was on annual leave but it's a proving to be a battle. When I first handed in my notice I was told I had quite a bit of
  15. Hello everyone! I've tried to research this on my own so many times, but I'm unable to find a clear answer to this. I'm a EEA national who is about to start a full-time business from home. As my business will be just starting, probably I won't met the earning thresold to be automatically seen as a self-employed in order to claim WTC. Any of you is getting WTC being an EEA national but earning less than 155 weekly pounds? Please note I meet the criteria of age and working hours before replying. Your help is appreciated!
  16. Dear CAG team, I have a query regarding what my holiday entitlement is, as my employer is being evasive when questioned and I feel I may not be the only one with issues of this type. I work as a live in PA to a disabled women, who hired me directly and who pays me herself, not via a payroll company. I work 22 hours every day, (2 hours break), 6 days straight, then I have 8 days off. So basically nearly 2 weeks every month. I am paid my the hour, not salary and I am paid every 4 weeks, not calendar month. The problem reared its head when she told me that I am a pro rata empl
  17. Evening Could you put me straight on the issue of holidays. My background I work part time for a large home ware store, 3 days per week 16 hours, Monday/Thurs and Sat. My issue I need to resolve is: If I am taking some of my working days off as holiday, for instance my last time off was -working monday holiday thur back in Saturday..Was my boss within his right to ask me to work the weds of that week? To me that would mean I am not really getting a break? What is the point of taking a days holiday if I have to go in the wed so not got a few days off.? I may as well h
  18. Hi, I work 4 days a week and therefore entitled to 22.4 days holiday (rounded to 23 days) from 2011 to 2014. A per my contract and through custom and practice, I receive double rate for working on Bank Holidays since 2009. In 2015, I worked 8 Bank Holidays and these were paid at double rate. However, that year the management had reduced my holiday entitlement by 8 days. Their reason was that I was paid double on Bank Holidays, this rate was as part "payment in lieu" for a holiday entitlement. My office is open through out the year and I work every Bank Holiday each year and
  19. Hi, Not sure where to post this so went to the most correct sounding place. I have for the last few years been working with a company during the summer months. As it is seasonal work there is no holiday in the usual sense, it is simply moving from site to site and working when needed. At the end of this current season (2015) I received a payment in lieu of holiday out of the blue for the time I worked as they have moved to an automated payroll system. However in previous years (2011,2012,2013 and 2014) I never received this payment. I was wondering whether there was any c
  20. Hi all Thanks for taking the time to look at my question. As stated in the title I've requested my holiday allowance from my employer and have received a response stating my allowance so far this year is 6 hours a week as per my contracted hours. I work on average 25 - 30 hours a week shift work and have done for the entire year and previous years too. So far this year I have been paid for 544.5 hours of work Here is quoted from my contract under the headline "holidays" "In each holiday year you are entitled to 5.6 weeks paid holiday pro rata to your working week ( the holi

  23. Hello folks, have been a member for a good number of years but not posted very much. I now have a question that hopefully somebody may be able to give some advice about. For the last 21 years I have worked as a Janitor for a local government authority, about 4 years ago they put some Janitors (not all) on to term-time contracts, unfortunately I was one of the ones that was put on to a term-time contract. More recently they (government authority) have changed us from weekly paid to monthly paid, so what they do now is calculate your yearly wage, including holiday entitlement, an
