    This means that on each occasion you take time off, your pay has to be calculated using a new pay reference period. The result of this is that you may be due a different amount of pay for different periods of annual leave.

    Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the prompt response. i get the average holiday pay calculation but the bit i'm not getting is how they ignore any holiday pay paid to me when they calculate my holiday pay. over a 12 week period if i book a weeks holiday they don't count that weeks holiday pay as part of my average earnings however they do count the week as part of the 12 week timescale. so i have 11 weeks money but averaged over 12 weeks, this obviously has a detrimental effect on my holiday pay the next time i book a holiday. for reference i work a 40 hour week and have done for the last 12 months.

      Surely average holiday pay has to be an average of everything i've been paid whether it's basic wage or holiday pay, they can't leave out any holiday pay as that reduces my holiday pay below my regular basic wage.

        Do you work fixed hours or are you on a rota/shift pattern of work?

            If you are on fixed hours then your holiday pay will be calculated using your usual pay rate and there is no reference to the preceding 12 week period. The only other consideration would be whether you would normally earn commission or overtime during your holiday period.

                Sorry for delay in responding. In my opinion if your working hours do not vary then calculating holiday pay over the preceding 12 weeks is not the normal way to calculate your rate of pay. Holiday pay should be calculated using your normal pay rate.
