The Scottish Employment Appeal Tribunal formulated a landmark ruling on holiday pay. Trade unions welcomed the decision on test cases, which could lead to claims by hundreds of thousands of workers who do voluntary overtime. The tribunal's ruling looked at whether variable elements of pay, such as overtime and allowances, should be included in holiday pay calculations. The tribunal stated that article 7 of the Working Time Directive is to be interpreted such that payments for overtime are part of normal remuneration and to be included as such in the calculation of pay for holiday leave taken under Regulation 13 of the Working Time Regulations 1998.
