Taskforce to assess judgement in holiday pay ruling
The taskforce will consist of a selection of Government departments and business representative groups. The taskforce will provide a forum to discuss how the impact on business can be limited.
Business Secretary Vince Cable, said, “Government will review the judgment in detail as a matter of urgency. To properly understand the financial exposure employers face, we have set up a taskforce of representatives from Government and business to discuss how we can limit the impact on business. The group will convene shortly to discuss the judgment.
“Employers and workers can also contact the ACAS helpline for free and confidential advice.”
In today’s judgment the UK Employment Appeal Tribunal decided that holiday pay should reflect non-guaranteed overtime.
