Working time: Holiday pay must be paid as and when holiday is taken

This report relates to 1 case(s)

Key points

  • In MPB Structure Ltd v Munro [2002] IRLR 601, the EAT in Scotland holds that the Working Time Regulations 1998 require holiday pay to be paid at the appropriate rate as and when the holiday is taken.
  • Therefore, a provision in a contract of employment for holiday pay to take the form of an addition to basic pay was void because it limited the effect of, and was caught by, the restriction on contracting out in the Regulations.
