Unions Make Decision On Employment Ruling

  • Posted on

A couple of weeks ago we reported on the ground-breaking decision for employers re holiday pay, just this week Unite have said they will not be appealing against the Employment Appeal Tribunal ruling that overtime should be included in holiday pay calculations.

The Employment Appeal Tribunal's decision in Bear Scotland v Fulton case, has the effect of (largely) preventing claims for holiday-pay back pay going back to 1998.

“Fears had been raised that the trade union (which acted for claimants in the three co-joined cases) would appeal the limitations imposed by the court on retrospective claiming, but despite their recent statement I don’t think this has been laid to rest and employers need to be kept abreast of the situation,” said Susan Mayall, Head of Employment Law.
