Just before the end of the year, the government have released further guidance in relation to the ongoing debate regarding holiday pay and overtime calculations.
At present there is still no indication whether the ruling is going to be appealed, and as such the Government has now taken action to begin putting the ruling into legislation. We therefore encourage business’s to begin reviewing this as a permanent change.
The Government has indicated that claims for back pay will be limited to 2 years, which will settle some business’s fears that claims could go back to as early as 1998.
The same rule in regards to breaks in a series will apply and as such claims can be further limited, but from 01 July 2015, any claims made will limited to a maximum of 2 years.
We will of course update you as soon as we receive any further developments in this area.
