Some holiday pay legal rulings

A few bookmarks here on claims for unpaid holiday pay.

The Smith/Pimlico Plumbers judgment makes clear that workers who have taken leave but have not been paid for it, or have been denied the opportunity to take leave, can claim holiday pay for the whole period of their employment. The Court of Appeal also cast doubt on the restriction to claims for holiday pay being limited to a 3 months period as decided in Bear Scotland.

Prospect’s legal team has circulated a briefing to officials about this and members would be strongly advised to get advice from the legal team for claims which may fall into this category.
