  1. holiday pay for employee paid hourly

      It is very long and written in complex language. I need to try to find a reference to holiday pay or somehow a reference to hours over and above the preset working hours?
  2. holiday pay for employee paid hourly

      I get paid for the exact hours I work, which sometimes is more than 38,5 and sometimes less, but those hours are what I aim at working each week. When I take a day off or for public holidays, I get paid for 7 hours.
  3. holiday pay for employee paid hourly

    I am working via an employment agency for client company. The contract was quite confusing as to whether I would be working a 35 hour week or a 38,5 hour week. The contract has monthly hours which is quite complicated to interpret at first glance. The 38,5 hours was something mentioned in an email faily early on in the process of being offered a job, as it is the standard working week in the client company. I initially started working a 35 hour week as I was following what was in the contract. I was then told to work 38,5 hours. I have been told I have 2 days paid holiday per month, but during the first 6 months I can only take 1,5 days per month. My problem is more with the pay I received for holidays.  I am also only paid 7 hours wages per day off, which seems unfair as I am working 38,5 hour weeks, which means an average working day is 7,7 hours. When I challenged this, my employer just said that was the way it was, although he was confused. He now seems to be offering time off in lieu, which makes it even more complicated to keep track of. It this legal or normal practice in Germany?
