United Kingdom -Holiday pay ruling may have large impact -June 30, 2015

Court rules: voluntary overtime may have to be included in workers' holiday pay entitlements.

The Belfast based Court of Appeal ruled that voluntary overtime may have to be included in workers' holiday pay entitlements. This decision, in a legal challenge by an employee of the former Castlereagh Borough Council, could have a huge impact across the UK. The case was brought by an assistant plant manager at the council, over alleged unauthorised deductions from his wages. Earlier on a tribunal rejected his claim that earnings from voluntary overtime should be used to calculate paid annual leave. But his lawyers appealed on the basis that this would mean he would lose money when he took holidays.
