Holiday Pay Challenge Runs out of Gas in Supreme Court

03 March 2017 #Employment

The long running question in Lock v British Gas, whether holiday pay should include commission, appears to have been definitively answered. The Supreme Court has ended British Gas’ legal challenge by refusing leave to appeal the decision of the Court of Appeal that holiday pay should be based on basic pay and any commission an employee would normally earn.
