Working time: Provision in contract for withholding accrued holiday pay was void

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Witley & District Mens Club v Mackay 7.6.01 EAT 151/00 (1), the EAT holds that a provision in a collective agreement denying pay in lieu of outstanding holiday entitlement to a worker dismissed for dishonesty, which was incorporated into his contract of employment, was rendered void by the Working Time Regulations 1998. They contemplate the payment of a sum, but not no sum, in respect of leave entitlement outstanding on termination of employment.
