That’s the first thing. If you’re temping, you’re entitled to holiday pay!
It accrues from your first hour of work. And it’s 12.07% of your basic pay.
To work out what 12.07% is, multiply your pay by 0.1207.
So if you are being paid £8 an hour, for example, after one hour of work you are entitled to 97p of holiday pay.
That’s 8 x 0.1207.
After a seven hour day at £8 an hour you will have earned £56. So you would do £56 x 0.1207.
And you would be entitled to £6.76 of holiday pay.
So if you did one day and you earned £56 for example, then left and said ‘I don’t want to work any more’, you can say ‘can I have my £6.76 of holiday pay?’ You must be paid this by law.
After 12 weeks you might be entitled to more as well. If you’re not on a pay-between-assignments contract, then after 12 weeks you’re entitled to the same pay as a permanent employee doing the same job and, if permanent employees receive more than 28 days per year, so will you.
