For part-time employees in Italy, annual leave is prorated based on the number of days worked. 

In case of horizontal part time (employee works 5 days a week with the reduced hours) the entitlement to PTO is equal to full-time employee.

In order to calculate the part time PTO entitlement for vertical part time (employees who works less than 5 days a week) you can use the below formula:

26 days * working time % = annual leave entitlement for part time employee

For example:
Employee works 3 days a week for 20 hours. 
26 days* 50% = 13 days of PTO

How to request annual leave as a part-time employee?

In order to request annual leave, all part time employees should request 1 day, regardless of the actual working hours. The payroll engine will deduct the proportioned hours effectively taken.
