Thames Water Utilities v Reynolds [1996] IRLR 186 EAT

Reports relating to this case:

  • Holiday pay: Holiday pay calculation should be based on calendar day

    Date:
    1 April 1996

    In Thames Water Utilities v Reynolds, the EAT holds that the Apportionment Act 1870 applied to the computation of a day's annual holiday pay to which an employee was contractually entitled on termination of his employment, and that the meaning of "a day" for these purposes is a calendar day rather than a working day.
