Employment Appeal Tribunal Rule On Holiday Pay

The Employment Appeal Tribunal has ruled that overtime should be considered when calculating holiday pay.

Currently only basic pay is used to calculate holiday, however, the landmark ruling means that any worker who does voluntary overtime could claim for additional holiday pay.

Full details of the ruling have yet to published, however it is understood that the ruling could face an appeal, which could see a final judgement held off for a number of years.
