Holiday Pay News

The EAT has decided that the Insolvency Fund should base its holiday pay calculations to include contractual commission. This decision has been backdated and is relevant to any person who has applied for monies from the insolvency fund.

The Fund will be contacting people who have applied since August 2011, but anyone who applied before then should contact the Fund themselves to reclaim their holiday pay.

The fact government departments are now incorporating contractual commission is a sign that recent case law is binding and anyone who hasn’t should start including contractual commission into their holiday pay calculations immediately.
