Cogent Staffing Limited Holiday Statement of Particulars
Cogent Staffing Limited offer 28 days' holidays to its workers, accrued in arrears. The holiday year runs from January to December each year.
Your holidays are accrued as follows:
232 working days eligible to accrue holidays (minus weekends and holidays)
28 days / 232 working days = 12.07%

Holiday hours per week is calculated by:
Weekly hours worked x 12.07% = Holiday Hours per week
(i.e., 37.5 hours x 12.07% = 4.53 holiday hours per week)
Average remuneration (calculated over the preceding 52 paid weeks)"
For example, £8.72 per hour

Holiday Pay per week
Holiday hours x Average pay rate = Holiday pay per week
(i.e., 4.53 hours x £8.72 = £39.50 holiday pay per week)
This is roughly equivalent to just over half a day per week accrued for every full week worked
