In this edition of Workplace Law we look at holiday pay calculations and the recent gender pay gap reporting.
In recent years there have been numerous high profile cases about what items of remuneration should be included in holiday pay calculations.
The latest of these cases is Flowers and others v East of England Ambulance Trust. In this case the Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) held that voluntary overtime should be taken into consideration when calculating certain elements of holiday pay.
In April 2017 the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 came into force. These regulations require all those employers in the UK with 250 or more employees to produce a report on the gender pay gap within their organisation.
