HOLIDAY PAY: Will it never stop?

14 July 2017  

Kate Gardner and Sarah Driscoll report on a recent case on holiday pay which could have major implications for gig economy businesses

As employers and their advisers will be aware, there has been a series of far-reaching legal developments on workers’ and employees’ rights to holiday pay in the last few years. The pace of change shows no sign of slowing, following the advocate general’s (AG’s) recent opinion in King v The Sash Window Workshop Ltd [2017] that the right to paid annual leave carries over indefinitely until a worker has the opportunity to exercise it.
