Are you considering temping for Jobwise but have questions about holiday pay? Look no further! This article will answer all your holiday pay needs.

How is my holiday pay calculated?

Good news! You’re entitled to holiday pay as a Jobwise temp. Your holiday pay rate is based on your average pay rate and hours worked for the preceding 52 weeks worked at the time your holiday is paid. The annual entitlement for holiday is pro-rated for part-time workers. So, if you’ve been working regularly, you can expect a decent amount of holiday pay.

How do I check how many days of holiday I have?

Your cumulative holiday entitlement is shown on your weekly payslip. It’s essential to keep track of how many days you have left, so you don't accidentally end up without any paid leave before the year ends.

When does the holiday year run?

The holiday year runs from January to December, 52 weeks. So, every January, your entitlement resets, and you start accruing new holidays that you can take throughout the year.

How do I request a holiday?

You need to contact your branch consultant and request the dates through them at least one week in advance. It’s crucial to be proactive in requesting holidays since they fill up quickly.

Do I get paid Bank Holidays?

Yes! Providing you have accrued enough holidays while working for Jobwise. You would then opt to use these to cover Bank Holidays. This is not done automatically; you will need to request them through your branch consultant.

Can I carry my holidays over into the next year?

Unfortunately not! Any holiday pay entitlement must be taken during the same year that it's accrued. So, make sure that you're taking full advantage of all your paid leave before it's too late!

If I stop working as a Jobwise temp, will I still receive my holiday pay entitlement?

If you decide you no longer wish to temp for Jobwise, you need to contact your branch consultant and request any outstanding holiday pay, along with your P45. This is not an automatic process, so don't forget to ask for what's rightfully yours.

So, there you have it: all the answers to your FAQs about holiday pay as a Jobwise temp! If you have any other queries or concerns, please feel free to get in touch with us, and we'd be happy to help.
