The Holiday Pay Debate...

The Holiday Pay Debate... November 10, 2014 by Mike Henshaw

I'm sure we will all have heard about the recent discussion regarding The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) and holiday pay. The debate suggests that overtime should be included when calculating for paid leave.

In our industry, overtime and additional payments have been available to some employees and as such we can expect that a number of questions will be raised.

There are of course current rulings in place. However, this latest debate will spark off new considerations. That said, it is likely that any new approach will be appealed and therefore will be caught up in the court system for some time yet.

So, for now, there is no change in how the industry needs to cover holiday pay and any change will only be as a result of future Government advice.
