Brabners hosts seminar on Holiday Pay: The Unanswered Questions

Brabners hosts seminar on Holiday Pay: The Unanswered Questions

Thursday 11th September 2014

North West law firm Brabners is hosting a seminar on holiday pay to guide employers through the impact of recent European and UK case law in this area including the scenario of potential back pay claims from employees – going back 6 years and beyond!

Employment law specialists from the firm will consider the many unanswered questions in this unsettled area of law and offer both a comprehensive review of the position to date along with strategic guidance for employers, business owners and HR professionals tasked with handling this difficult issue.

Speaking at the event are Brabners Employment Partner Joseph Shelston and Associate Kate Venables.

Joseph Shelston said: “Holiday pay calculation used to be a widely accepted and uncontroversial practice but following recent decisions in Europe and in the UK courts, there is now the potential for employers to have to recalculate holiday pay – both going forwards and, in some cases, historically to deal with back pay claims for underpaid holiday pay for a large number of their employees. For employers large and small, this has the potential to become the biggest liability since equal pay and many organisations are receiving collective grievances or claims. Any organisation which operates an overtime, commission, allowance, call-out, stand-by, acting-up or bonus payment structure should take advice now.”

The seminar takes place on Tuesday 23 September 2014 between 8.30am and 10am at Brabners, Horton House, Exchange Flags, Liverpool, L2 3YL.
