Changes to holiday pay from 01 January 2024 – part two

Published On: December 20th, 2023By

From 01 January 2024, holiday pay calculations will be simplified for those working irregular hours. Here’s what you need to know about how the new laws will affect your organisation.

‘Rolled-up’ holiday pay calculations – this will be permitted for those working irregular hours from 01 January 2024. If you want to roll up holiday pay for individuals working irregular hours (you don’t have to!) you will be able to uplift their hourly pay by 12.07% to take account for their holiday.

An example – an employee has worked 20 hours in one pay period (such as a month) at a rate of £12 per hour. You want to include payment for holiday accrued during that period (rolling up their holiday). From 01 January 2024, you can pay them £268.97 for that pay period (which includes an uplift of 12.07% on the £240 they would have otherwise been due).
