Why Holiday Pay is Still Such a Big Issue for Business
The Working Time Regulations say that a worker must receive a week's pay for a week’s holiday.
But the concept of a week’s pay is set out in a number of pieces of legislation that weren’t created with holiday pay in mind, and so holiday pay remains a big issue for businesses.
Employment experts Joanne Moseley and Glenn Hayes discuss important topics relating to holiday pay, including:
- How much holiday workers are entitled to receive
- Why holiday pay is still such a big issue for business
- Workers claiming underpaid holiday
- The impact of Brexit on holiday pay rules.
Our latest podcast will help you as an employer or HR professional make sure your organisation is following holiday pay guidance - listen now on Podbean, Spotify, or Apple Podcasts.
