Consultation closed: Holiday pay and entitlement

Throughout the past year, we have brought you various updates on calculating holiday pay and entitlement for part-year and irregular hours workers.

Following the Supreme Court judgement in Harpur Trust v Brazel, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has concluded a consultation. The aim of which was to seek views from employers, professional bodies, unions as well as workers on the calculation of holiday entitlement received by part year and irregular workers.

You will remember that the Supreme Court ruled that those who worked part year, or irregular hours must receive the full 5.6 weeks of paid annual leave and must not be prorated. This was a significant ruling triggering many employers in having to review their practices and deal with an additional financial cost as a result. It also led to confusion and uncertainty because despite it confirming that leave must not be prorated, it still left questions open around how to calculate the pay when a worker does not have set or regular hours.

Furthermore, with the Retained EU Law Bill, a broader examination of the UK’s annual leave laws is being undertaken.
