Peter Woodhouse, Head of Business Sector and Employment Team at Stone King, has been quoted in an FE News article: Landmark case confirms statutory minimum annual leave for all workers #Future of Employment in which he comments on the recent Harpur Trust v Brazel Court of Appeal ruling. He says:
“The decision of the Court of Appeal in Brazel clearly shows the court’s position on calculating holiday pay for term-time and seasonal workers and is a warning to employers. It highlights the risk that employers face if they use shortcuts instead of calculating holiday pay under the Employment Rights Act (ERA) 1996. They have to use a set rate and ensure that any “part-year” workers are not receiving less than their statutory entitlement under the ERA 1996.
