BREAKING NEWS…CALCULATING HOLIDAY PAY HAS CHANGED

BREAKING NEWS…CALCULATING HOLIDAY PAY HAS CHANGED

The Court of the European Union has judged today that commission payments should be taken into account when calculating a worker’s holiday pay in the case of Lock v British Gas Trading Limited.

This decision is firmly in the employee camp however there are further cases due this year which may shed further light on the situation. Employers should therefore start the practice of including this figure within their calculations. Failure to do so could result in claims under the Working Time Directive and back pay.
