BREAKING NEWS for Holiday Pay ...

BREAKING NEWS in the world of holiday pay and entitlement. 

The Government has today confirmed that:

- it will introduce 'rolled-up' holiday pay for those workers or employees who work irregular hours or part-year workers (which includes term-time workers)
- the 12.07% accrual method will be used for irregular hours/part-year workers (and thus the 52-week reference period and average pay approach developed by Harpur Trust will be short-lived)
- it will legislate to clarify what must be included in calculating "normal remuneration" for holiday pay purposes
- it will not be merging the current 'basic' (4 weeks) and 'additional' (5.6 weeks) annual leave entitlements, allowing employers to pay (if they wish to) normal remuneration for 4 weeks only and basic rate of pay thereafter

It is yet to be confirmed when the above will become the law, but reasonable expectations would be that it will be in force by 1 January 2024.
