Following the EAT’s ruling in Bear Scotland & Others, get the complete guide to your new holiday pay obligations and discuss the practical operational challenges with your peers.
This landmark Employment Appeal Tribunal judgment overturns decades of established UK practice. It confirms that holiday pay can no longer be based on basic pay.
If any of your employees receive holiday pay which does not reflect the amount they normally earn when you take overtime, allowances and performance-related payments etc into account, you will be affected by this judgment.
In this breakfast briefing, we explain the key aspects of the judgment and how it will affect you. We discuss how to achieve compliance in practice, including the difficult task of deciding how to calculate average normal earnings and which types of variable payment to include. We will help you understand your exposure to back pay claims and other consequential liabilities such as tax, NICS and possible underpayment of pension contributions. We also discuss how to respond to union or workforce demands. Throughout the session, you will have the opportunity to discuss the issues you are likely to face, and possible solutions, with your peers and our legal experts.
