Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.

Many thanks for your patience. As a worker who worked full tile %by that I assume at least 5 days a week), he would be entitled to a minimum of 28 days holiday a year. These are accrued on a pro rate basis throughout the holiday year. If we divide 28 by 12, we get an approximate accrual of 2.3 days of holiday per month. If he worked there for 3.5 months, then that would mean we calculate 3.5 times 2.3 to get just over 8 days holiday due to him for the time he worked there. Assuming he did not take any holidays at all, he would be entitled to get paid for the full days he had accrued whilst working there. If he is not paid correctly, he can consider a claim in the employment tribunal to recover what they should have paid him.
