*Cessation of “Rolled-up Holiday Pay”

With effect from the commencement of the 2015/2016 school year the practice of “rolled-up holiday pay” ceased.  Previously casual and non-casual teachers were paid a daily/hourly rate which included an element in respect of annual leave, Circular letter 0015/2015 introduced a separate payment in respect of holiday pay. This change was made to bring the method of remunerating casual and non-casual teachers in line with the European Union Working time     Directive, following a decision of the European Commission.

The overall remuneration of casual and non-casual teachers will not change, however 12%  will be removed from the current hourly casual and non-casual rates. This represents the teachers’ statutory annual leave entitlement of 4 weeks per year. The teacher will accumulate statutory annual leave to the value of 12% of time worked. Teachers are required to take their statutory annual leave entitlement during the school closure periods, ie: Christmas, Easter, Summer.

Please refer to circular letter 0015/2015 for further details.
