Holiday Pay

The report provides Members with information on the Council’s proposed approach to resolve a dispute relating to the underpayment of holiday pay in light of recent case law in this area. The proposed approach is to pay a plusage of 7.66% on a range of elements which are non-contractual and therefore are not paid to an employee when they are on holiday. This approach is in line with other GM Authorities. The report also charts the key milestones leading up to the current position and sets the recommendation in the context of the Council’s industrial relations and financial position.
