Are employers entitled to retract enhanced holiday pay?Posted in : Seamus Says - Employment Law Discussion on 5 October 2018
Q. Are employers entitled to retract enhanced holiday pay?
Scott: An employer has two types of workers - some of them work five days a week, some of them work three days a week. There is an enhanced holiday entitlement for long service.
What seems to have happened is that the ones working three days a week have ended up getting an extra week's holiday. Instead of getting three days, they have been getting five days. This has been going on for quite a while, but the system didn't pick it up, but they now have. The question is, can you take away those extra days holidays?
