Urgent Update – Holiday Pay Claims
Calculating holiday pay
In addition to current legislation, a number of recent court judgments should be considered when calculating holiday pay.
This means that the rules employers and workers follow to calculate holiday pay may need to be updated.
The introduction of The Deduction from Wages (Limitation) Regulations 2014 means that when making a claim for backdated deductions from wages for holiday pay, a two year cap will be placed on all claims that are brought on or after 1 July 2015. This means that the period that the claim can cover will be limited to a maximum of 2 years.
Anyone wishing to bring a claim ahead of the introduction of the two year cap placed on all backdated claims that are brought on or after 1 July 2015, will need to have obtained an early conciliation certificate and presented the ET1 claim form to tribunal on or before the 30 June 2015.
