Working time: Statutory annual leave notice requirements were varied by contractual terms

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The Working Time Regulations 1998 permit employers to specify the dates on which workers are to take annual leave, subject to notice requirements that may be varied or excluded by means of a "relevant agreement". In Industrial & Commercial Maintenance Ltd v Briffa EAT/0215/08 & EAT/0216/08, the EAT held that a variation incorporated into the employee's contract of employment amounted to such an agreement.
