The New Improved Formula Really Works ............

Today in the FCCL office we have had a bit of good news. 
It concerns our recent post here 

One of our supporters emailed to say that they had just had confirmation from West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue that their holiday pay calculation on retirement in 2010 was incorrect and they were shortly  to receive

We are assured that the individual concerned will be popping by the FCCL office very soon so we can partake in a celebratory cup of coffee and a bun. (and he's paying) 

This is the third person  we are aware of who has got a windfall due to WYFRS messing up. 

As we know that

2012  - 24 firefighters retired
2013 - 16 firefighters retired 

that's potentially approx £80,000 owing from 
two years alone from operational staff - what about the non operational ones too !!!

and as we have already stated this claim was from a retirement in March 2010! so heavens knows how many more people may be entitled to cash. 

That's a lot of money people may be missing out on  that they may not be aware of. In our opinion the calculations should ALL BE CHECKED going back several years rather than individuals having to make a claim. 

Below are the calculations used for the most 
recent claim. 

Gross pay  £28,199 
Holidays Owed 28 days 

Old Formula 

4 weekly payments divided by 28 and multiplied by the number of days outstanding. 
= £2162.23 

New Formula 

           Annual payments divided by 182.5 
and multiply the number of days outstanding.
= £4326.42
