Episode Two: Holiday Pay
The Baker McKenzie London Employment team is delighted to welcome you back to our virtual mini-series, “Employment Rights: is 2022 the year of enforcement?“, with episode two, where we explore key considerations for employers who are managing the thorny issue of holiday pay.
In this episode Richard Cook and Amy Ling discuss how the inclusion of holiday pay in the government’s proposed single enforcement body remit is expected to put employers under increased scrutiny as they handle arrangements in this sensitive, and often tricky, area to navigate.
Furthermore, they consider three high-profile cases, including the recent judgement received in the Smith v Pimlico Plumbers case, where the Court of Appeal overturned the EAT in favour of Mr. Smith. The impact of this decision could be wide ranging, and is likely to increase scrutiny on holiday pay arrangements by the SEB, and ramp up the importance for employers to take advice now on resolving any outstanding issues with their holiday pay calculations.
