Holiday Pay Case Referred

26 March 2010 #Employment

The Working Time Regulations 1998 comes under the spotlight again in the case of British Airways Plc v Williams and Ors.  The pilots in this case argued that they should have received flying allowances on top of their basic pay when on annual leave.   

Under the Working Time Regulations, holiday pay is calculated by reference to the average salary a worker receives over the previous 12 weeks.  However the dispute arose in this case as the Regulations expressly exclude certain workers in the aviation sector.
