    Jones v Squire's Garage & Road Transport Ltd EAT/752/92 (0 other reports)

The fact than an employee worked for six weeks during a three-month guarantee pay period did not mean that the start of the next guarantee pay period was postponed by six weeks, holds the EAT in Jones v Squire's Garage & Road Transport Ltd. An employee is entitled to guarantee pay for up to a maximum of five workless days in any three-month period. This does not mean that a payment necessarily covers particular dates, and it is irrelevant whether or not the employee works for part of the guarantee pay period.
