    I am departing my current job with my last official date being 26.12.2012, I am owed 3 days holiday which they are going to pay me for. I have been informed by HR that my final pay will not be a full months pay and will only be 29 days pay including the 3 days holiday.

    I have questioned this and they have said that the reason it won't be a full months pay is because 29th & 30th are the weekend, now even though we do not work the weekends, and my 3 days holiday covers 27.12, 28.12 & 31.12, they are saying that as 29th & 30th is the weekend then this is where it falls short by the 2 days.

    Surely this is incorrect as if the weekends have never been worked, as my contract is Mon-Fri then I should still get a full month pay?

    When was your official finishing date?

    D'Oh. Just read it. No you wouldn't get paid the extra days.

    but shouldn't it be 26 days as I am working till 26th, and then the additional 3 working days holiday that is being used to cover 27.12 28.12 & 31.12, the weekend not being counted as this isn't working days?

    i am probably over thinking it all.

    Your 'normal' monthly pay would be based on "continual employment". This obviously isn't true of your final month.

    Some employers ignore this and pay you your normal 'month'- some, though, are sticklers.

    Sadly, it's right. Seems to be a little overly particular on their part, especially as you're leaving so close to the end of the month - but what do you care - you're leaving them ! :)

    It's strange really; I really don't know you or them, but even I'm happy that you're leaving the job..! :blink :biggrin

    Yes, but you don't use it to extend the week ... it's finish 26 + 3 days, not 29 days, if you see what I mean. If you finished on the Monday after, you would get paid the weekend, and then 3 days on top. (I've just asked our HR Manager)

    ok well i guess i am being a bit naughty anyway as my last 'actual' working day is 20.12 as i have a flexi day on 21.12 and then have the bank hols to cover me through till 26.12 which is why i put down 26.12 for my last day and they accepted it, so i am kind of getting 6 days free :)
