7.2. The Agency Worker’s entitlement to payment for annual leave under clause 7.1 accrues in proportion to the amount of time worked by him/ her on Assignment during the Leave Year.
7.3. Under the AWR, on completion of the Qualifying Period the Agency Worker may be entitled to paid and/or unpaid annual leave in addition to the Agency Worker’s entitlement to paid annual leave under the WTR and in accordance with clauses 7.1 and 7.2. If this is the case, any such entitlement(s), the date from which any such entitlement(s) will commence and how payment for such entitlement(s) accrues will be as set out in the relevant Assignment Details Form or any variation to the relevant Assignment Details Form.
7.4. The Agency Worker must take all annual leave during the Leave Year in which it accrues and, except as may be set out in the relevant Assignment Details Form or any variation to the relevant Assignment Details Form, the Agency Worker may not carry any annual leave forward to the next year.

In certain circumstances the Employment Business may require the Agency Worker to take paid annual leave at specific times or notify the Agency Worker of periods when paid annual leave cannot be taken. Where the Agency Worker has given notice of a request to take paid annual leave in accordance with this clause, the Employment Business may give counter-notice to the Agency Worker to postpone or reduce the amount of leave that the Agency Worker wishes to take. In such circumstances the Employment Business will inform the Agency Worker in writing giving at least the same length of notice as the period of leave that it wishes to postpone or reduce it by.
7.6. Subject to clause 7.3, the amount of payment which the Agency Worker will receive in respect of periods of annual leave taken during an Assignment will be calculated in accordance with and paid in proportion to the number of hours which the Agency Worker has worked on Assignment. Unless otherwise stated in the relevant Assignment Schedule, paid annual leave entitlement accrues as follows: During the first 12 months of employment your entitlement to paid annual leave shall accrue in proportion to the length of your employment. Where the Agency Worker has normal working hours, in proportion to the number of normal working hours the Agency Worker works on assignments during the leave year as specified in the relevant Assignment Schedule; where the Agency Worker has no normal working hours, on all hours worked; and in either case, as may otherwise be required by legislation in Section 224 of the Employment Right Act 1996. Payments for annual leave will be calculated on the basis of rates paid for hours worked during the relevant calculation period as defined by Section 224 of the Employment Right Act 1996.
7.7. Subject to clause 7.3, during any Assignment during the first Leave Year, the Agency Worker is entitled to request leave at the rate of one-twelfth of the Agency Worker’s total holiday entitlement in each month of the leave year.
7.8. Except where this clause is amended by the Assignment Details Form, where a bank holiday or other public holiday falls during an Assignment and the Agency Worker does not work on that day, then subject to the Agency Worker having accrued entitlement to payment for leave in accordance with clause 7.2 or clause 7.3 (if applicable), the Agency Worker may, upon giving the notice in clause 7.5, take a bank holiday or other public holiday as part of his/her paid annual leave entitlement.
7.9. Where these Terms are terminated by either party, the Agency Worker shall repay to the Employment Business an amount in respect of any holiday periods taken in excess of the holiday entitlement for that year and the Agency Worker hereby authorises the Employment Business to take repayment of such monies by way of deduction from any final payment owed to the Agency Worker. If, following such deduction the Agency Worker owes further monies in respect of pay received for annual leave taken but not accrued at the time of Termination, the Agency Worker will repay such monies within 30 days of termination of these Terms.
7.10 The amount of payment which the Agency Worker will receive in respect of periods of annual leave taken during the course of an Assignment will be calculated in accordance with and paid in proportion to the amount of a week's pay, which is the amount of the employees average weekly remuneration for the past 52 worked weeks.

8.4. If the Agency Worker submits a statement of fitness for work (“the Statement”) or similar medical evidence, which indicates that the Agency Worker may, subject to certain conditions, be fit to work/return to work, the Employment Business will in its absolute discretion determine whether the Agency Worker will be (a) placed in a new Assignment or (b) permitted to continue in an ongoing Assignment. In making such determination the Employment Business may consult with the Hirer and the Agency Worker as appropriate to assess whether the conditions identified in the Statement or similar documentation can be satisfied for the duration of the Assignment.
8.5. Where clause 8.4 applies, the Agency Worker’s placement in a new Assignment or continuation in an ongoing Assignment may be subject to the Agency Worker agreeing to a variation of the Terms or the assignment details set out in the Assignment Details Form to accommodate any conditions identified in the Statement or other similar medical evidence as is appropriate.
9.1. Any of the Employment Business, the Agency Worker or the Hirer may terminate the Agency Worker’s Assignment at any time without prior notice or liability.
9.2. The Agency Worker acknowledges that the continuation of an Assignment is subject to and conditioned by the continuation of the contract entered into between the Employment Business and the Hirer. If the contract between the Employment Business and the Hirer is terminated for any reason, the Assignment shall cease with immediate effect without liability to the Agency Worker (except for payment for hours worked by the Agency Worker up to the date of termination of the Assignment).
9.3. If the Agency Worker does not tell the Hirer or the Employment Business that they are unable to attend work during the course of an Assignment (as required in clause 4.3) this will be treated as termination of the Assignment by the Agency Worker in accordance with clause 9.1, unless the Agency Worker can show that exceptional circumstances prevented him or her from complying with clause 4.3.
9.4. If the Agency Worker is absent during an Assignment and the Assignment has not been otherwise terminated under clauses 9.1 or 9.3 above, the Employment Business will be entitled to terminate the Assignment in accordance with clause 9.1 if the work to which the Agency Worker was assigned is no longer available.
