  • Holiday pay: Contractual holiday pay in excess of statutory entitlement satisfies WTR

    1 August 2002

    In Walker v The Co-operative Insurance Society, the EAT holds that there is no breach of the Working Time Regulations 1998 ("the WTR") where an employer fails to use the formula specified thereunder to calculate holiday pay entitlement for an employee who works variable hours, but makes a contractual payment in excess of the employee's entitlement under the WTR.
