As a Search Associate, you are entitled to a maximum of 28 days (5.6 weeks) holiday per annum, inclusive of all public holiday entitlement*. Paid annual leave accrues in relation to the amount of time you've worked, and will be pro-rated where part-time hours are completed, or if you don't work a full year as an Associate.
The holiday year runs from the date on which you started working for Search as an Associate. During your assignment, you will build up a ‘holiday pot’. For each week that you are paid, this ‘pot’ will be increased by a minimum of 12.07% of hours worked to ensure that you receive the minimum of 28 days holiday.
All holiday entitlement must be taken during the holiday year in which it was accrued, and may not be carried over. If you fail to take all your holiday entitlement during that year, no payment will be made for the untaken days.
*Please note, holiday pay is only paid to PAYE Associates of Search. If you are paid through a Limited, Umbrella, CIS or Employer Service Provider, then the responsibility of holiday pay lies with them. Please contact them for confirmation of your entitlement.
