An Employment Appeal Tribunal has ruled that some overtime should be included when calculating holiday pay. This means many people working overtime could claim for additional holiday pay.
Currently, only basic pay counts when calculating holiday pay. The tribunal also ruled that workers can make backdated claims for a particular three-month period. It would apply only to the basic 4 weeks’ leave granted under the Working Time Regulations.
However, the ruling could still be referred to the Court of Appeal which may mean that a final decision may be some time off yet.
