Part-time leave


Dear HR Community,

As a result of our restructuring efforts, we are starting to convert some full-time employees to part-time.

The conversion will take place on 1 September 2020.

The working hours will reduce to four hours a day for five days a week.

The current leave entitlement for full-time employees is 25 days per annum.

The questions I have are:

1. How to calculate leave after the conversion.

2. When they go on leave after 1 September, is it half or full-day.

Please reply in the form shown below.

We are in the banking industry.

Thank you very much for your comments in advance.




HR Poll: Are you planning to convert staff from full to part-time?

Yes, I am planning to - 22.22%

No, we don't intend to - 55.56%

Not sure what we will do yet - 22.22%




1. Pro-rate by date. Pre-Sept: Normal entitlement. Post-Sept: Pro-rated. This is the fairest and easiest to defend.

2. Then pro-rate by the half-day arrangement for post-Sept entitlement.

3. Once you have the combined numbers, you can then go about adjusting for people who have over-consumed annual leave.
