Public Holidays

Right all you part-time working mums out there .. quick question :

I'm due to go back to work at the beginning of May ;( .. and am only going to go back for 3 short days (6 hours) -- when I had Callum I only went back for 3 days but this was for a different firm and I worked Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays so I got most of the public holidays off ... trouble is this time I think I'm gonna go back Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and in my last firm a friend of mine who came back after mat leave and worked this got extra holiday entitlement because she essentially lost out on most of the public holidays because she didn't work a Monday ... I've asked the girl who deals with payrol at my work and she said that she would look into this and confirm but that was the beginning of last week and I haven't heard anything from them.

Can anyone shed any light on this??

I went back Mon, Tues and Wed so got all the public holidays but had to 'pay them back' pro rata out of my holiday entitlement. The people who didn't work Mondays didn't get any more, it was the Monday workers who had to give something back if that makes sense???

Then again this was working for a bank and they were stingey gits when it came to time off.

I think it will be employers discression too, as essentially if you don't actually work the monday in the first place you aren't losing anything are you? Hopefully though they will be nice to you and at least let you have an extra half day for every bank holiday monday :))

thanks guys - although if that's the case I may just work Monday - Wednesday instead ... that is what I worked just after I had Callum and I did love it felt as though the week was just starting and I was finished ;) --- I'm not stuck to specific days re. childcare so can choose which days I go back .. will wait and see what they come back and say

I loved working Monday to Wednesday too. You get a really good long weekend and get to flounce out of the office on a Wednesday while your colleagues are all miserable as sin because they still have two full days left :D

Our place don't 'give back' those public holiday days you miss if you don't work them (if you know what I mean) - if you're part time. You just miss out.

in all honesty, ALL public holidays are ultimately and legally at the employer's discretion, despite them being "public" holidays and whilst you are legally entitled to take that day off as leave, employers are also legally entitled to deduct that day of leave from your annual entitlement
