Working time: Unilaterally imposed "rolled-up" pay rate did not satisfy holiday pay obligation

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Blackburn and others v Gridquest Ltd (t/a Select Employment) and others [2002] IRLR 604, the Court of Appeal holds that, as the workers in this case had not entered into any contractual agreement that they were to be paid at a "rolled-up" weekly rate of pay which included an element of holiday pay, they were entitled to holiday pay under reg. 16 of the Working Time Regulations 1998 without the need to give credit under reg. 16(5) for the additional payment the employers claimed they had received.
