With organisations often offering upwards of 20 different benefits and allowances to their staff, we look at those beyond health-related benefits, company cars and pensions, to see what else is on offer.
Away from health-related benefits, company cars and pensions, there are a host of other benefits available to employers to boost the package they offer to employees. We investigate some of the other benefits available.
An employment tribunal has found that a worker's holiday pay should be calculated by reference only to his or her basic pay, excluding overtime pay, discretionary bonuses and standby allowances, taking a more straightforward approach than the tribunal in the controversial decision in Neal v Freightliner Ltd.
