if your part timer works an average of 3 days a week then 28 days / 5 * 3 = 16.8 days holiday annually (after 1 April)  If employee is working mainly part days then it maybe best to calculate holiday entitlement on hourly basis Total number of hours holiday will then depend of definition of normal workings hours stated on the contract of employment. The apportionment of these normal working hours worked by the part time employee will decide on the number of hours of annual holiday entitlement The leave year starts from eitherthe date stated on contract of employment or on written statementor else it is from date when worker began work
