The key points to note coming from these cases are:
Leave was given to appeal this judgement and we await confirmation of whether any appeal will proceed. If so it is likely that the issue of how far back holiday pay claims can go will be a key issue for consideration by the Court of Appeal.
Following this morning’s report on holiday pay business secretary Vince Cable has announced he is setting up a new task force to assess the impact of this ruling. Although the press release issued by the Government does use neutral language about “assessing the possible impact” of the holiday pay ruling a tweet issued from the BIS press office did mention that the Government’s task force would be looking at ways that it could assist businesses in limiting the impact of the holiday pay ruling.
