Holiday

Paid holiday is accrued at a rate of 1.67 days per month.  If you work part-time, your holiday entitlement will be calculated pro-rata to the number of hours you work.

Public holidays are treated as normal working days.

Sick pay

There’s no official definition of a part-time worker, but it’s generally someone who works less than 35 hours per week.

When a part-time employee works overtime, that doesn’t change their definition.

A zero hours’ contract is one where the employer doesn't guarantee any particular amount of work to a worker.  However, zero hours’ contract workers still have statutory employment rights.

Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) is the minimum amount of sick pay employers have to pay when someone’s away with illness. If the worker earns above £118 per week, have been with the company for more than 3 months, and become ill for 4 or more days in a row, they’re eligible.

The 4 days is reduced to 1 day if they're self-isolating due to COVID-19. 

This means that if you work enough (with the same employer) to reach the earnings threshold of £118 per week, you are entitled to the same Statutory Sick Pay as above (£94.25 per week). It has to be with the same employer - you can't reach the threshold by combining hours from two different jobs.
