Seminar on new holiday pay rulings 11th December

2 Dec, 2014

No more budget holidays as firms forced to pay more for staff holidays.

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) recently released its decision in the much anticipated case of Bear Scotland Ltd v Fulton & anor which ruled that workers now need to receive regular overtime payments when they take their paid holiday entitlement.

Historically, only compulsory overtime was included in an employee’s holiday pay, but now non-guaranteed overtime also needs considering.

This case has received significant press attention with many workers already getting out their calculators ready to calculate the outstanding sums due to them.

Given the significant cost implications it is important that business owners understand the cost ramification and how to mitigate these where possible. Retail chain, John Lewis, has already reportedly set aside £40 million to reimburse workers following this ruling.

Our Client Guardian Support in conjunction with No5 Chamber is hosting a seminar on Thursday 11th December 2014 at Birmingham City FC.

The event starts at 8am and includes breakfast and refreshments.

Helen Barney, Deputy Head of the Employment Group at No5 Chambers will be speaking at the event and will provide an informative overview of the following topics:

  • What payments should be included in holiday pay, in particular, she will look at overtime payments, commission, bonuses and shift premiums.
  • Does this latest ruling apply to just the 4 weeks holiday derived from European Legislation, 5.6 weeks in line with the Working Time Regulations or contractual holiday as well?
  • How far back can employees claim and what can they claim?
  • Should you be changing your holiday pay policies?
  • Should you be changing your working practices to mitigate future liability?
  • What are other employers doing?

Places are strictly limited and are available on a first come first served basis.

The cost of the seminar is £50* per person.
