About Overtime and Holiday Pay

A decision by the Employment Appeal Tribunal on 4 November 2014 relating to non-guaranteed overtime and bonuses changes some employee’s entitlement to holiday pay. In some cases substantial sums may be recovered by employees. See the case report here http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/bear-scotland.pdf

The decision means that employees who are contractually obliged to do overtime when it is offered should have had these payments factored into holiday payments made by their employer. If they were paid base salary only (which is almost certainly the case) a claim for the difference will arise. This ruling does not specifically relate to voluntary overtime.

How much does a solicitor cost?

We offer a free telephone conversation with a qualified solicitor to assess whether we can help you and advise the best course of action. Occasionally we can work on a ‘no win-no fee’ basis or you may be able to claim on your house/car insurance to cover our costs (as some policies include ‘Legal Expenses Insurance’ which provide cover for employment disputes.) If neither of these options is available to you then we can agree to either carry out the work at our hourly rate or agree a fixed fee for the work.
