A solution-based HR Forum on how employers should approach their workers legal entitlement to holidays and holiday pay.
Holiday pay calculation is the latest headache for employers. Last summer, the John Lewis Partnership and Waitrose paid over £40 million to staff to head off potential claims by staff for years of underpaid holiday. In May, a European court decided that workers must have commission reflected in their holiday pay. The team will look at the implications of these developments, how to devise a commission scheme that complies with the new European ruling, and whether your business is at risk for claims for historic underpayment of holiday.
The team will also look at the following tricky issues:
the extent to which employers can “roll up” holiday pay into the wages of workers;
how to calculate holiday for workers who may have atypical working patterns, and;
what happens to the holiday pay of people on maternity leave.
If you have any particular problems or queries that you would like us to address during the session please do email these through in advance and we will do our best to cover them. There will also be an open Q&A session on the day.
Registration and breakfast will begin at 8.30am with the seminar starting shortly after.
We do hope you can join us. If you would like to attend please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
