042 Holiday Pay For Temporary Workers – The Pimlico Plumbers Case

All workers in the UK have a statutory right to 5.6 weeks paid holiday per year, and as a temporary worker it’s doubly important to make sure you receive your right.  So we’re chatting to legal expert and friend of the show Rebecca Seeley-Harris who sheds some much-needed light on the subject.  Join us to find out:

  • Why a Court of Appeal ruling against Pimlico Plumbers is important;
  • How holiday pay accumulates and whether you might be entitled to backdated holiday pay;
  • Case that says your umbrella or agency should be alerting you to your holiday entitlement;
  • The case that could dramatically change how holiday pay is calculated for temporary workers;
  • What to do if you think you have not received your statutory holiday.

Statutory holiday is a complex area of legislation, even more so for temporary workers who don’t easily get an opportunity to take their paid holiday.  This is essential listening packed full of key points from the latest legal cases.
