Although the 12.07% method is recommended by Acas, this method is criticised and, in early 2018, the EAT in Brazel v Harpur Trust (where Ms Brazel was a guest music teacher at Bedford Girls` School, working on a contract that only worked on a term basis, but without fixed regular hours and without a fixed duration), that the use of the 12.07% method to calculate vacation pay for indeterminate workers was incorrect and/or zero-hour contracts with variable hours, and that their wages should be calculated on the basis of their average income over the past 12 weeks.
